I provide proofreading to publishers and non-publishers of English texts in the arts and humanities, social sciences, and the business sector.
I follow the client’s brief and correct errors of English grammar and punctuation, and check for any inconsistencies in the text, particularly deviations from the client’s chosen style guide. Additionally, I highlight any layout and typographic issues if required.
I provide copy comparison or blind proofreading, on paper or
onscreen, using the BS 5261C: 2005 marks in accordance with your house style or chosen style guide. If an onscreen mark-up is required I use PDF-Xchange, its typewriter tools and the electronic stamp versions of the BSI symbols.
I am confident using Microsoft Word and proof-edit documents
using its Track Changes function, styles, and macros. I specialise in the arts and humanities, social sciences and welcome any work from publishers of academic texts in these subjects. I have a particular interest in all genres of
English literature in addition to history and psychology.
I provide proofreading and proof-editing to students and
businesses using Microsoft Word and PDF-Xchange. If you are a student of the arts and humanities or social sciences I can proofread the main text for essays, theses, dissertations and journals. While proof-editing your work I can check your references for consistency and ensure they are presented in accordance with your required referencing system and style.
If you are a business I can proofread marketing materials
and reports by checking for grammar, punctuation and consistency errors, in addition to dealing with any layout issues.
I have nine years’ experience in the print and stationery
section of a large haulage company and contributed to the ordering and production of two- and four-colour printed documents. These documents included marketing brochures, business cards and letterheads, in addition to operational
forms and packaging materials that bore the company’s livery.
I gained a BA (Hons) in English language and literature in 2012 and subsequently studied proofreading with the Writers Bureau and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). I passed the proofreading mentoring scheme with the SfEP in 2015, and I successfully completed their academic referencing course in May 2016. As an intermediate member of the SfEP I am committed to following their code of
conduct and work in accordance with their proposed terms and conditions.
