...who needs an editor?

authors and self publishers





English as a second language (ESL)


You might be an independent author who has just finished a first draft, or perhaps you have revised and polished your masterpiece as much as you can before submitting to a publisher. Or perhaps your PhD or Master's dissertation is almost there but your first language is not English and you want a final-draft edit before you submit. It might be that you're a business owner who wants a leaflet checked for clarity and grammatical errors, or an academic who is looking for a good reliable editor to take on the proofreading of important journal submissions. Common to all these possible scenarios is a simple fact: you have spent time and effort writing words that say something about you, your company, or your work, and you want to communicate your ideas to an audience in a clear and precise way. And, because you care about your message, your brochure, your novel, your thesis, your advertisement etc., you are seeking professional advice before committing your words to the finality of publishing and distribution. A professional edit will show your work at its very best for your readers.

If working with an editor is new to you, then please use the what-we-do page and sub-menu to discover more about what we offer in your particular area of expertise, and the how-it-works page for an explanation of how we might work together. For more general background about proofreading and copy-editing, the information page should be of interest. Or, if you prefer, just get in touch and we can advise you further.
