Proofreading and editing services

What services do I provide?

the blue pencil logo

The Blue Pencil can handle editing and proofreading for fiction and non-fiction projects as well as some copywriting. These can include emails, blogs, novels, presentations, documents, and manuscripts in both British and American English.

See below for the types of projects I can assist with.

 

I will identify and suggest corrections to ensure your writing is polished and perfectly* written. If something is incorrectly written or needs "tweaking," I can suggest changes to make it grammatically correct. My rate depends on project complexity, subject matter/genre, turnaround time, number of passes, and other similar factors. 

Contact me with your project details for further information. I'm here to help. 

I will:

·      check spelling.

·      check grammar and punctuation.

·      check sentence structure.

 

I work with:

·      Microsoft Word.

·      Google Docs.

·      PDFs.

·      American English and British English.

* Unfortunately nothing is 'perfect' or 'flawless', see my statement for further guidance and what to expect when employing an editor or proofreader.

Proofreading and editing for businesses

You're a small business which produces documents to complement your product or service. You need to have reports, articles, publications, product copy and even your website double-checked for errors, or you could appear unprofessional. Most businesses cannot afford to have a proofreader employed full-time in-house. That is where I can help with a bespoke service.
