Testing Times

Difficult Editing Times

These are difficult times for all of us. Small businesses are particularly hard hit, though I realise times are hard for everyone. One bit of good news is that I work remotely, so can continue the work I do. But clearly not that many people are thinking they need editing or proofreading services at this time – but why is this?

Jobs Market

Many people have been laid off work due to their employer going under, deciding they can’t afford to pay their staff after furlough, losing their self-employed jobs due to lack of demand – a huge variety of reasons! But these people can’t rely on the state forever and need to find new employment.

I can sort out your CV or resume, and also help with covering letters. I know what a CV or resume needs to include and what it doesn’t. Also, I understand the language needed for this sort of document and the length required. My minimum charge for sorting out a CV is £15, so I don’t see why anyone looking for work wouldn’t make use of my services.

Editing For Students

Many students are now having to work from home and submit their essays and dissertations digitally. I have edited and proofread a plethora of essays and dissertation.

I understand the various styles needed (Harvard, MLA, Chicago and so on), so all you need to do is let me know and I will ensure it follows that style. In addition, I can check your references and bibliography, ensuring it goes to the correct citation and follows the style required.

Obviously, I won’t rewrite your essay or dissertation, or do the research for you, but I am more than happy to ensure it uses perfect English and follows the required style.

That Book You Intend To Publish

I know there are many budding authors out there. You’ve starting writing a book, but just can’t get it done. Or maybe it is done, but you’re not convinced it’s good enough. I have edited many books, a lot of which have gone on to be published and done well!

I am happy to edit any book or novel, ensuring the English is perfect (liaising with you throughout to make sure I meet your needs) and provide feedback on the book – giving any pointers you need.

All Of You Need Editing!

You may not think you need any copy edited, but I bet you do! Or maybe you may have an email or letter you were thinking of sending – to an MP, councillor, school, university, government department, shop or whatever – but weren’t sure about the language you used. That can be edited to perfection by me!

You may have a letter or email of complaint, yet again you’re not certain the language you used is right.

ANYTHING you need edited, I can sort out for you! All you have to do is get in touch with me and I will make it happen.

Book Me

There’s a lot of positive feedback on my Testimonials page, so please take a look to see their comments. There are also reviews on FacebookYellYelpFree Index and My Local Services. I always do my best work when people really need me, so please take a look at the services I offer and get in touch!

I’ll then send you a quote of my price and we can take it from there. Once we’ve agreed a price, I will do the work and send the edited document back to you via email (or, if it’s a big file, via a dropbox, WeTransfer or whatever means you prefer).

You can then either pay me directly through your bank or through PayPal (all my details are on the invoice I will send you). I also have an IBAN and BIC, so international payments can be made.

It’s guaranteed you will be happy with the work I do! I will make any amendments you require at no extra charge. Happy customers are my reason to keep going, which is why I’ve been successful so far.

I look forward to hearing from you! You can also email me at prooftheword.com@gmail.com.
