Service Description

Editing and proofreading:

As a published and agented author, I can hone your manuscript until it sings. I can also guide you through the publishing process, from the agent hunt to publication. Using track changes in MS Word, I'll provide a line-by-line critique of your work and a detailed write up focusing on key storytelling elements like voice, plot, character and conflict. I have a keen eye for editing and critiquing - just check out my 5-star reviews for an insight into the detail I'll go into.

Journalism:

With over 3 years' experience as a sports writer for a leading national newspaper, I'm skilled in writing and researching a range of topics.

Copywriting:

The internet can be a jungle. You need your copy to shine to stand out. I can write SEO friendly web copy, and have 3 years' experience working in this field for Booking.com.
