Professional editing services for students, academics, businesses and indie authors

You might not consider yourself to be a perfect writer in the traditional sense, but you do consider yourself adequate or even a good writer. You believe that with the support and assistance of a professional that your writing – novel, website copy or student assignment – can be brilliantly enhanced.

Hi, I’m Janie, and that’s what I do, one keystroke at a time. I work with the dual perspective of an editor and a published author. I believe in the beauty and precision of the written word to convey the writer’s meaning, and that I am almost your collaborator.

Welcome to my online home. I invite you to come in, learn more about me and my work, and stop to consider what I can do for you and your writing.

Feel free to explore my website through the navigation above, and learn more about my work.

Proofreading

Proofreading is about making sense of your written material and improving its presentation.

Taking your time

It can be very difficult spotting errors in your own written material. No matter how often you check it, there will be mistakes that you miss. Taking the time to have your work professionally proofread or edited will remove those errors and give an overall clarity and consistency to your writing. 

I work on screen using Microsoft Word with tracked changes and clear comments on amended text. I maintain a dialogue with you throughout, giving you a truly bespoke service.
