I have a thorough training in proofreading and fiction editing from the CIEP (Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading). I am also an approved Partner Member of ALLi (Alliance of Independent Authors).
Whether proofreading, copy editing or line editing, I fully appreciate the importance of maintaining each writer’s unique voice. Although I specialise in fantasy, science fiction and dystopia, I am happy to work in any genre of fiction and in narrative non-fiction.
I also work with researchers and students, including those with English as an additional language. My teaching background means I understand the problems writers may encounter when seeking to submit or publish their work in a language that is not their mother tongue. My EAL clients have gone on to have their work successfully published in academic journals.
I have an MA in English Literature (Glasgow University) and a Distinction in Creative Writing (Open University). I pay meticulous attention to detail, communicate clearly and promptly, and stick to deadlines.
When taking on new clients, I work with them to assess what type of service they need, and to agree on pricing and time frame. Commitment-free consultation comes as standard. Testimonials are available on my website www.fionaherbert.co.uk
