As a publisher, it goes without saying you want someone who is well-trained in the industry.

Someone you can brief and leave to get on with the job, confident that everything’s in hand.

Someone who views meeting deadlines as a given, consistently delivering high-quality work to schedule and budget.

I can work at different levels, from copy editing to structural editing, imposing your house or referencing style to meet your brief. I can use your bespoke editing templates in Word. I also have many years of experience in editing English as a Second Language.

I can liaise directly with the author, if briefed, to resolve queries and provide a clean manuscript. Anything unclear is queried, and potential legal issues such as copyright or libel are picked up for you to investigate in-house.

For sub-editing, I can shape your text, making it vibrant and accessible by editing to prescribed word counts, writing captions, headings and other display copy.

For proofreading, I can use your in-house proofing system or work on PDF (either using Acrobat mark-up tools or BSI stamps), to deliver marked proofs. I also work on hardcopy.

You have the reassurance of your project in safe hands, and in great shape to take forward.
