I am a trained proofreader offering proofreading services to academics, businesses, publishers and independent authors. I am a Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), which ensures a professional level of proofreading. I trained to become a proofreader with the Publishing Training Centre, completing their Basic Proofreading training programme.

I hold a BA (Hons) in English Literature, awarded by The Open University. I also hold a Diploma in Copywriting, awarded with Distinction.

Every client receives my friendly, professional service, always delivering proofread documents that meet the brief and within an agreed time frame. I have proofread fiction and non-fiction, academic publications and business documents.

Comments from my clients

Laura did an excellent job proofreading my academic publication.” – John

The quick response time and level of professionalism is unmatched: Your warm and friendly response to our initial inquiry about the possibility of being offered your services; your ready response to peruse a sample chapter or two of the manuscript; your acceptance to proofread it within a fortnight, and, successfully doing so in less than the estimated time. Above all, I am very satisfied with your remarkable editorial services that have enhanced both the clarity and readability of my manuscript.” – Mazi O. Ojaiku, author of ‘The Igbo People: Culture and Character’

I’m so glad I asked Laura to work with me. She is so warm and friendly and on the many occasions I phoned her to make minor adjustments to my manuscript, she had infinite patience with me, never asking if she could phone me back… Her proofreading is just what I needed for a professional finish to my manuscript…And Laura’s fast work at an affordable price was the icing on the cake. I would recommend Laura to anyone.” – Arthur Lester, author of ‘Meet Me on Frodsham Station’

Laura helped me with my UCAS application. I was enormously impressed by the standard of service provided, she is very thorough and lightning-fast!!

Each time, she sent me two documents: one showing my errors and changes made, and another with the changes applied. I found them very helpful, and now I aspire to become a better writer!

I feel very lucky to have found her, and would confidently recommend her service to anyone.

Laura is a professional person providing an exceptional service at a reasonable price. I was very pleased with the proofreading and copyediting services provided by her efficiently and promptly. I really appreciated her immediate response every time I sent her an amendment. Wish her all the best, and definitely will recommend her to everyone!

Laura is a professional proofreader who works carefully and effectively with my MA degree dissertation. My grammar and syntax are carefully reedited, and she finally gave two versions back, one of which shows every correction clearly. The proofreading service can probably be finished within 24 hours. It is really satisfying, and I believe that everyone can afford it !

Laura provided an excellent proofreading service in a fast and efficient manner and for a reasonable price. The ancillary book marketing services were also useful so that I could publish my book far quicker than if I had attempted to do these myself. I would have no hesitation in utilising Blue Laurel in the future, or recommending her to others.
