Great text grabs your reader’s hand and takes them where you want them to be. For this journey to happen your words need to be impactful, professionally presented and free of errors. That’s a tall order, and communication that falls short can affect your organisation or your projects. This is where I can help.
Spotlight offers a comprehensive copy writing, copy-editing and proofreading service. This combination resolves any problems with written documents, from academic papers and author’s manuscripts through to corporate communications, annual reports and marketing materials.
Many of my clients come from the private and voluntary sectors, and I also enjoy working with independent authors and academics. I ensure your written material is accurate, meaningful, compelling and true to your aims. You benefit from excellent communication that adds to your reputation and helps fulfil your needs.
As a long-term member of the Institute of Leadership and Management and an intermediate member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), I am supported in my work by excellent professional bodies. What’s more, I have the honour of chairing the monthly Glasgow meeting of the SfEP. With many years of experience of writing, editing and proofreading, I have also completed specialist training in all these areas. In addition, I hold a Master of Business Administration, a Master of Arts (Soc. Sci.) and a Post-graduate Certificate in Health Economics. These qualifications have proved invaluable to my work on a range of short and long term editing and proofreading contracts.
I’m happy to work on very large and tiny projects and am noted for my patience, humour and willingness to meet deadlines.
A range of testimonials and a client list are available on my website, http://www.spotlighteditorial.com, and you can email me at [email protected]orial.com or give me a call on 07795 109235.
I contacted Chris with Spotlight Editorial to proofread the conclusion of my PhD thesis. I am very happy with the outcome. She paid attention every detail including grammar mistakes and typos in images, tables and footnotes. Would certainly recommend her for proofreading services.
My new novel ‘The Wonder Turner’ has definitely taken flight because of Chris’ energy and passionate commitment. Chris is style and grace, whatever the pressure.
We would be happy to recommend Chris for all proofreading, editing and copywriting works. Her use of language and tone ensure engaging copy which, together with her enthusiasm, makes her an excellent copywriter and has made our time working with her extremely enjoyable.
In addition, her ability to quickly learn the facets of an unfamiliar industry sector and her understanding of our customer profile enabled her to transform our existing customer information quickly and succinctly into a bespoke narrative, that we have been able to use in our new website and marketing material.
Christine’s impeccable writing skills coupled with sound judgement and a close attention to detail made for a wholly successful outcome. I recommend her work highly.
Chris helped me with a poem in the style of Burns. What a pleasure to deal with, she was also organised, knowledgable and a lovely person. She did me some fantastic work and research! Invaluable! Would totally recommend and use her services again!
After another proofreader fell through, I contacted Chris with Spotlight Editorial to proofread my 83,000 word PhD thesis. She was able to accommodate my timeframe and was very reliable with the agreed schedule, sending chapters as she finished them. Chris also works with the editing style and feedback mechanism that works for you. Would definitely recommend her for proofreading services.
