Even if you’re an excellent writer it’s easy to construct sentences that are difficult to follow, use more words than necessary or target the wrong audience.

 

This service includes all proofreading checks and improves the following:

  • Quality of word usage and flow of text.
  • Sentence and paragraph structure. 
  • Ensures text is concise and removes redundant wording.
  • Awkward phrasing is revised without losing the author's voice and style.

Pricing £9.00–£11.00* per 1000 words. 

​Having your work proofread by a fresh pair of trained eyes will avoid costly mistakes slipping through that could affect you financially, brand reputation or your grade.

 

This service corrects the following:

  • Spelling mistakes and typos.
  • Punctuation and grammar errors.
  • Formatting inconsistencies. 
  • Consistency of tense.
  • Subject–verb agreement.
  • Capitalisation and hyphenation errors.

Pricing £6.00–£8.00* per 1000 words. 

This in-depth level of editing applies to short stories and books. All proofreading and copy-editing checks are automatically included in this service.

 

I work on flash fiction, children's books, novellas, romance, thrillers, memoirs, young adult fiction, self-help guides and epic novels.

  • For fiction I highlight/amend structure, plot, pace, characterisation, and storyline inconsistencies and continuity.
  • For non-fiction I check and improve presentation, structure and style.

Pricing is discussed on an individual basis.
