When it comes to proofreading – the last line of defence for catching errors – publishers want a safe pair of hands, and Stephen York’s are the safest of all. Whether it’s applying a specified style guide, ferreting out inconsistencies, or catching an elusive orphaned citation, Stephen’s work is of an exceptional standard, and the reports he supplies with each completed job, specifying the standards applied and the outstanding author and publisher queries, are a model of clarity and thoroughness. No one hiring Stephen will be disappointed.
