SERVICES

I offer:

  • writing and rewriting
  • copy-editing
  • proofreading

to individuals and businesses wishing to improve the quality and impact of their written material for any of the following:

  • publication
  • promotion
  • information
  • fundraising
  • grant application
  • examination (theses and dissertations).

Projects range from web-site pages to funding applications to scholarly texts: no job too large or too small! In addition, I have a wide breadth of specialisms - history, politics, education, natural history, horticulture - to inform work with material in a number of different categories. I am also accustomed to the significant re-writing sometimes required when working from the English of non-native speakers. I can provide editorial input at any stage and to any degree, with either on-screen or hard-copy formats.

Above all, I strongly believe in the value to the client of getting things right with their literature, whatever its nature or purpose.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

  • BA History/Politics
