About me

I am a professionally trained freelance proofreader with a BA (Hons) degree in English Literature.

My BA (Hons) degree means that I can expertly proofread either thesis or dissertation essays on English Literature covering from the Anglo-Saxon period to the 21st century, but especially:

  • Victorian literature
  • Romantic literature
  • Children’s literature
  • Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century literature
  • Medieval literature
  • Shakespeare
  • Austen

I can also proofread essays on other Humanities subjects, including media and history. I have a particular interest in the Plantagenet and Tudor periods.

I have wide-ranging experience in both the public and private sectors – including business support/mentoring, EU projects, finance and accounts and general business administration.

I provide a top quality proofreading service for business documentation, including:

  • Reports
  • Business plans
  • Brochures, posters and flyers
  • Web copy and blog posts
  • Training documentation
  • Conference materials

Or, if you’re looking to self-publish then I can also check over your manuscript. I work on all genres of fiction and non-fiction titles.

I have a particular interest in wildlife and nature, so always relish the opportunity to work on any texts on these topics.

Proofreading: a second pair of eyes to check your text for spelling, grammar, punctuation and consistency.

Any type or size of project considered.
