Do you need a quality check on your text?
Based in Manningtree, Essex, I offer professional, friendly and flexible proofreading and editing services. I’m fully trained through the Publishing Training Centre (PTC) and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) (now the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), of which I’m a Professional Member).
Whether you’re a publisher, a self-publisher, a student or you run a business, I can proofread/edit any written material you produce. I’ll check for errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling, layout, consistency and style.
And if you have a tight deadline, that’s fine – I’ll work under pressure to help you meet it.
I specialise in linguistics, sociology, sport and music. However, I’ll work on written literature of any subject matter.
I have experience of proofreading on paper or on screen so, depending on your needs, I can be flexible in which format I use. If a client decided that a little more than just proofreading would be useful, I can also ‘proof-edit’ or lightly edit your work.
For more information on all of the above please visit my website.

“I found Pete’s proofreading skills to be top-notch. He worked with a complicated design brief, picked up on subtle points and returned a very clear and concise mark up. I would highly recommend him.”
Julie Bennett, Bespoke Publishing Ltd.
“We have used Pete’s editing services for two recent sport titles and have been very satisfied. He returned the jobs on time, showed good attention to detail and was easy to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
Jane Camillin, Pitch Publishing
“I’ve just self-published a technical e-book, and I chose Pete to edit/proofread it. I particularly liked that he firstly did a sample review for me, he sent my book back to me in small sections (this is how technical people like working), and he finished on time as planned. I think he did a great job, and it was a breeze working with him.”
Bilgin Ibryam, Apache Camel committer
“I was looking for a proofreader for my MA linguistics dissertation and was grateful for Pete’s quick response when I enquired about his services. He provided me with details about his proofreading service and it all seemed reasonable. Having received my amended work back, I really appreciated his efforts and valuable suggestions about how my writing could be improved. Overall, it was a great experience.”
