A review, edit and polish of your text can make all the difference between winning or missing out; understanding or confusion.
If you're about to submit a tender or report, half-way through an article about sustainability, or simply stuck with your writing, let me be your extra pair of eyes and friendly copy-editor. Together we'll make your text shine!

An objective review and feedback can help move your document forward and give it the right focus and frame. Things I consider are: your audience, legal or other requirements, clarity and flow.
As your copy-editor, I will apply what you want to say, what your audience needs, and the best way to write it. Things I look out for are: structure, message, style, coherence and general language use.
How confident do you feel about sharing or publishing your document, especially if English isn't your first language? Make sure it's good to go by hiring me to clean up grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation and formatting. I can work in UK or US English.
If you're losing time and money on reinventing content or correcting the same errors over and over again, I can help develop a custom editorial style guide that will improve quality and consistency for you and your readers.
