Professional help with non-fiction writing

If you’re writing or publishing non-fiction, I can help you with copy-editing, proofreading, setting up your documents in Word or InDesign, or formatting for print or ebook.

If you’ve written a novel, you’ve come to the wrong place. It’s important you work with someone who has the right skills and experience, and I’m not a fiction editor. Please search the directory of skilled professionals at where you will find someone to help.

But well done. By looking for a freelance UK proofreader or editor you’ve already realised just how hard it is to correct spelling, typos, punctuation and grammar mistakes in your own writing. I work with independent authors, businesses, organisations, design agencies and publishers on books, documents, promotional materials, reports, online content etc to help get your text ready for publishing or self-publishing.
