Proofreading and Editing Services

Alongside my job as a freelance copywriter, I offer proofreading and editing services for both academic and creative writers. Many writers (myself included) need an outsider’s perspective before their work is ready for the world. I offer a thorough proofreading service for writers whose work is almost there. I also offer an in-depth editing service for writers who need much more help with their particular project.

I am always keen to maintain the author’s sense of style and their intentions for their piece of writing; most of my job involves rearranging sentences so that they are easier to understand.

Creative Writing Credentials

I have been writing prose and poetry for over ten years. You can view my publications page to see where I’ve published some of my work. I also graduated with a distinction from The University of Glasgow’s MLitt in Creative Writing in 2016. I have edited a huge number of short stories, novellas, and novels over the years and can provide references on request from writers pleased with my services.

Academic Writing Credentials

I obtained a 2:1 joint honours degree in English Literature and Philosophy from the University of Glasgow in 2010. While at the University of Glasgow I also studied English Language and Classical Civilisation. My background at university has helped me develop my abilities as an academic editor. Both English Literature and Philosophy are rigorous in their own ways, and studying for a joint honours degree allowed to me see some of the best and worst academic writing available. I have edited academic writing at undergraduate, masters, and PhD levels. I have edited work in the following subject areas:

  • English Literature
  • Philosophy
  • Business Studies
  • History
  • Ethnomusicology
  • Education
