Writing and Editorial Services:
· Proofreading of all written text including essays, CVs, articles, short-stories, non-fiction books and novels. I check and correct spelling and typing mistakes, punctuation and hyphenating errors, the presentation of text on the page, consistency of layout and any possible factual inaccuracies.
· Copy-editing of all written text in preparation for publication. As well as the above-mentioned proofreading checks, I will also assess the overall layout and clarity of the text. I will ensure that the text is grammatically correct and flows clearly, and that the style of all text, headings, references and illustrations is in line with your publisher’s house style (if applicable).
