Why Proofreading?

“Why do I need proofreading?” I hear you ask.

Well, it’s simple.

A third party will be able to pick up small errors, omissions or slight typos in your content that you as the author are likely to not be able to.
As a budding author myself, I speak from experience that when trying to proof your own work, you will always miss small mistakes – be it a comma in the wrong place, a slightly misspelled name along the way, or a kink in the timeline of your story.

As a third-party reader to your work, I am able to be completely unbiased, plus also be looking at it through completely fresh eyes. I have no emotional connection to the work either and can therefore pick up these small errors or omissions along the way.

As your proofreader, I will look for all the syntactic, grammatical and spelling mistakes that might crop up in your work.

I will also assist with copy editing and offer suggestions based on your writing style, use of language, or just provide overall thoughts and opinions on the work as a whole – be it formal report writing, poetry, creative writing or anything in between!

I offer tailor-made packages to suit a client’s needs – be it a once-off project or monthly retainer packages that can be put together for as many (or few) hours per month as you need. It just takes one discussion and we can put together a package that works for YOU!

Below are some examples of how I will provide feedback – all work is proofread in Word format, with track changes turned on.
