Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $95

After becoming a qualified accountant in Queensland, Australia, and many years working in the financial sphere within Chartered Accountancy firms, the beckoning of the world of punctuation, spelling, grammar, and copyediting simply became too strong to resist.

On 1 January 2010 I established my business - Emma's Exceptional Editing & Proofreading. Colleagues and others who have known me my entire life applauded the career move claiming that it's a job I was born to do!

Service Description

I am in love with words and spent my formative years reading anything and everything I could get my hands on. I couldn't even sit down to eat my breakfast cereal without obsessively reading the information on the back of the cornflakes packet over and over again. I established my business over four years ago to create the freedom and the opportunity to immerse myself in the literary world... and I haven't looked back.

Whether you're looking for a comprehensive edit of your manuscript or simply a second set of eyes to proof your work, contact me today to discuss your options. I look forward to reading you soon!
