Copyediting and Proofreading

I am an Intermediate Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and have taken their courses in Copyediting and Proofreading. I am an active member of CIEP local and international networking groups, an avid reader of the excellent posts on the CIEP forums, and attend the CIEP conferences.

The House on the Downs by Judy Giles Memoirs of growing up on the Bromyard Downs during the Second World War.

As a freelance copyeditor and proofreader, I am building up my portfolio of different specialisms within historical fiction and non-fiction:

  • Local History
  • Social History
  • Family History
  • Memoirs
  • Biographies
  • Military History

Please take a look at my portfolio page for more information on the different types of books I have copyedited and proofread.

I prefer to copyedit and proofread directly into a Microsoft Word document using tracked changes, although I do have a working knowledge of BSI 2005 symbols on paper as well as commenting tools on Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.

I will copyedit and proofread your texts to the very best of my ability and also suggest areas for improvement, as necessary, without compromising your author's voice. I will follow your company's House Style Guide (if provided) and am happy to provide you with a Style Sheet once the project is completed. This is useful to ensure consistency within repeat business.
