Editing

High quality editing by a professional from structural to line edits.


Proofreading & copyediting - From academic papers to industry reports, grant applications and internet content, I provide comprehensive editing services from larger elements such as structure, clarity of message and keyword usage to the final details of spelling, grammar and punctuation. My focus is on polished prose while retaining your distinct voice.


Academic writing - As a university lecturer in critical writing, I use multiple approaches to find the best strategies to improve student work with a focus on clarity, criticality and structure. Are you struggling to meet word counts? Do you get comments that you need to be more critical or less descriptive? Looking to develop your arguments further, use evidence more effectively or find out more about plagiarism, citations and references? I have experience teaching students across many fields including: architecture, biomedical science, business, construction management, creative writing, criminology, dance, drama, engineering, English literature, fine arts, geography, history, journalism, law, music, nursing, pharmacy and pharmacology, philosophy, publishing, social care, and others.


Academic & professional applications - I have assisted clients with cover letters, statements of purpose, research statements, and applications for: jobs, internships, PhD programs/funding, independent research programs, and scholarships in a variety of fields and industries. From structure to proofreading, I provide a comprehensive service that presents you at your best while highlighting your unique approach, knowledge and voice.


Creative writing - Whether you are just jotting down your first thoughts, a student of a creative writing program or wanting to publish your work, I can help from outlining and plotting to structural edits to detailed line-edits and final proofreads. I am also happy to work with clients on individual short stories and stories, in addition to larger works. I am a literary magazine editor, a lecturer in creative writing and have had my own poetry and prose widely published. I edit the following forms: prose (flash fiction, short stories, novellas, novels and creative nonfiction, including memoir and personal essays), poetry and hybrid forms.
