Editing and proofreading


I have a Master of Arts degree in scriptwriting (distinction) and a Diploma in proofreading and editing (distinction). I have an eye for detail and I love the challenge of condensing information into manageable copy and finding words to express a vision.


I specialise in the following areas:


Film and television.

Drama and theatre.

Education (primary up to post-graduate).



I can proofread any kind of document including scripts, pitches, treatments, outlines, essays, applications, blogs, and educational copy. 


You may need editing rather than proofreading services if your copy needs substantial changes or needs to be cut down to a specific word count.


Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements. 

When proofreading I will check and correct the following:

Spelling errors.

Grammar errors.

Punctuation errors.

Typographical mistakes (typos).

Consistency in style.

Consistency in font.


Spacing and layout.

Factual errors.

Repeated words.

Globalisation (if the language used is accessible to a global audience).

Footnotes and reference lists.


When editing I will check the above plus:

Clarity in the purpose of the copy.

Consistency in author voice.

Appropriate language for the audience.

Cutting to desired word count.

Copyright acknowledgments.



​Proofreading from £10 per 1000 words.

Editing from £15 per 1000 words.


Please Note: 

I work in British English. 

I can work with Microsoft Word (using Track Changes) and PDF (using Adobe Reader) files.
