I am a qualified and experienced proofreader with specialist knowledge of social policy, religion, sport, voluntary organisations and the third sector, geography and education. I have passed the Publishing Training Centre’s standard course, Basic Proofreading, with Merit, and am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
I have proofread novels, anthologies, magazine articles and academic work. I always make sure my client understands what the proofreading process involves, and I am happy to discuss the best way for you to submit your script and for me to make corrections, queries and comments.
As well as checking for errors of spelling and grammar I can make sure your style and layout are clear and consistent, and will query any details, however small, where one part of the document is not consistent with another part. I am familiar with ‘Track Changes’ and with marking a PDF, using the standard BSI symbols for clarity.
I have worked within an academic ‘Code of Conduct’ to help students to perfect their work whilst they maintain complete responsibility for everything they write.
Above all, I want to communicate with you throughout the process so that we are both clear what I am doing for you, and so that you are happy with the outcome and completely understand all of my comments on your work.
