Give your writing an extra polish
The way that you write says something about you. Whether you're writing for work or fun, for yourself or your boss, or even for your hordes of loyal fans, I can help you to make your writing the best possible version of itself. So if you want paragraphs that flow, sentences that make sense, and punctuation that guides rather than confuses the reader, you've come to the right place.
I offer services including copy-editing, proofreading, manuscript assessment, native English assessment, and CV/resume design. If you are looking for something a bit different, send me an enquiry here.
I don't just love reading and writing – I love writers. I know how tough it is and I respect your craft and your creativity. I'm here to help; my job is to collaborate, not dictate. Editing is often described as 'a conversation on the page', and I look forward to having this conversation with you.
Attention to detail
Obsessive, pedantic, nitpicking, fussy, fastidious – sure, these terms may sound negative, but you know what? They're exactly what you want in an editor. Do you know 'who the hell cares' about that comma? Or that there's a hyphen where there should be a dash? I do.
Friendly and professional
Are you worried that if you show your work to anyone – an editor, for example – they will hurt you in terrible ways and stomp on your dreams? Not true. We're all trying to get by in this crazy world, and editors are just regular people. I'm actually super nice, I promise.
Editing clears the smoke from the fire. You want your readers to be entranced by your dazzling flames, not left coughing and spluttering in a cloud of smoke.

The big question is: what does it cost?
I hear you, and I know it sucks, but I won't actually know how much to charge until I've discussed the job with you. In most cases I will ask to see a sample of your work.
Once I have an idea of what you're looking for, and how I can help, I can give you a quote based on how much work I think is needed to achieve the result that you want.
You can find some descriptions of my common services here, as a starting point, and contact details are here.
