Editing

Academic editing

Whether it’s an impending thesis deadline, a research paper you’re hoping to publish, a project proposal to secure funding, or just a short assignment that needs an extra pair of eyes, I can polish your academic writing and help make your arguments shine. I secured two prestigious postgraduate scholarships on the strength of my academic writing, so I know that sharp sentences, flowing paragraphs and a clear structure can make or break a paper. With extensive experience of academic editing throughout my six years in higher education, I have detailed knowledge of citation styles and scholarly conventions. My background is in English Literature, but now I’m nearing the end of an MA in Gender Studies, and my experience editing and peer reviewing for interdisciplinary journals means I’m familiar with work across the humanities and social sciences. I’ve worked with undergraduate and postgraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds and English fluency levels; I’m happy to discuss your specific needs and tailor my services and rates accordingly.

Creative editing

As an expert in literary fiction and nonfiction, I can help develop your creative writing to its highest standard. I have experience running an arts zine and working with authors to get the best out of their fiction and poetry, and I peer review experimental creative pieces for academic-artistic journals. I can offer feedback on content, structure and style, as well as copy editing to make every sentence shine.

Proofreading

To make sure your text is flawless before it goes public, I can catch every spelling mistake and misplaced comma. My proofreading experience ranges from academic journals to popular history books to television subtitles, and I have a sharp eye for the smallest details – I’ll keep your quotation marks consistent, your semicolons in the right place, and your footnotes neatly formatted. I’m available to proofread texts of any length and genre with quick turnaround times.
