Service Description

Proofreading and copy-editing.

Apart from the extensive proofreading and editing which formed a key part of my work as a Government Lawyer and which required a high degree of accuracy and an ability to work to strict deadlines on matters which were frequently sensitive or high-profile, I have edited and proofread a variety of documents including dissertations; web content; blog posts; short stories and other works of fiction.

I hold a 2:1 degree from Birmingham University in English Language and Literature and am currently studying for a Masters degree in these areas at Nottingham University.
