I turn to Dawn every time I need to have my work proofread. She has alway been punctual and handled the different writing contexts very well. The working is saved in reader-friendly format and easy to edit. Dawn is really skilful and professional at what she does and I have benefited from her support considerably.
I have known Dawn for many years, and she is a meticulous and excellent proof-reader. She was formerly our College Librarian, and her attention to detail, and her overall knowledge of print literature, is outstanding. Dawn is able to turn her hand to many of the jobs that authors need help with – tidying and organising texts, editing and proof-reading. I have found her to be a quite exemplary support, and I know that other authors have benefitted enormously from her skills and wisdom. Dawn is a first class proof-reader, and a really wonderful and supportive colleague to have working alongside you, as you are developing texts and other written kinds of writing projects. I recommend her fully and warmly.
