Need your writing to achieve a specific goal? Let's get to work.

I'll hunt down your spelling mistakes, tidy up any grammar that's got a bit hairy, shuffle sentences into line, keep an eye on tone and voice, and get your semi-colons to work for you.

After University, I edited an internal guidance pack for the British Red Cross. After that, I worked as the editor of a major gaming website.

Service Description

What's most important is that you get the result you need from your writing, whether that be more viewers, more shares, or a good grade or something else entirely.

The editing decisions I make for you will be different to the next client, because your aims are unique.

I have a disciplined work ethic, ensuring that I complete work reliably and swiftly, and with a high degree of accuracy.
