Service Description

As a freelance proofreader I offer proofreading and editing services to both businesses and private individuals. Whatever the project and whoever the client, my aim is to provide an excellent service at a reasonable cost.

I will review your document, website, paper or e-book, and correct it for errors in spelling, grammar, syntax and word usage. I will also make suggestions to improve the flow and readability of the text. Is it too formal? Too casual? I'll work with you to produce the end result you're looking for.

My clients include start-ups, magazine editors, conference organizers, various small to medium-sized businesses and a lot of private individuals. Projects this year have ranged from proofreading a paper on hygiene practices in rural Laos to editing the web content of a professional juggler.

I've recently been appointed sub-editor of the new Australian real estate publication, Elite Agent. I am a member of Distributed Proofreaders and Elance Professional Network on LinkedIn.

In 2010 I encouraged my mother to write a memoir about her childhood in an abusive children's home. I edited her notes, ghosted a narrative and proofread the final manuscript, which we self-published under the title 'Misfits: A Tale of Two Sisters' for family and friends.
