I have over 37 years’ experience in the printing and publishing industry, during which I rose from in-house proofreader at a small printing office to chief copy-editor at a global publishing house. In addition, I have been headhunted for a highly regarded US multinational corporation. I have several well-respected client companies that use my services exclusively. My grounding in print, which includes typography and layout, means that I am well placed to cast a critical and sympathetic eye over manuscripts, ensuring the text flows rhythmically and looks the business.
I meticulously proofread text ranging from books, abstracts and website content to maps, internal communications and indices.
Travel literature and countryside matters, but to be honest, I proofread any text I happen upon, which includes railway station signs, headstones and the back of cereal packets.
