Copy-editing

Bring clarity to your content by hiring an expert freelance copy-editor

When you’re creating intelligent content for a busy audience, you need copy that’s focused, organised and jargon-free.

So if the draft on your desk is ambiguous, shapeless or hard to understand, chances are it needs a copy-editor’s touch.

From blogs to brochures and from white papers to websites, I’m a copy-editor who can cut through the verbal clutter – and bring the clarity your documents need.

My editing experience

My roots as an editor go deep. I was editing copy for a peer-reviewed medical journal as long ago as the 1990s, and subbing for national newspaper websites in the early 2000s. I’ve never lost the knack of spotting errors and rewriting copy for correct grammar and style.

More recently, I’ve copy-edited for content agencies, charities and professional services firms.

To commission me to copy-edit for your report, brochure or website, please get in touch.

Copy-editing: how I help

As a highly experienced copy-editor, I help you to:

  • Focus your copy on the needs of the people who matter most: the clients or stakeholders who will read it
  • Revise copy that’s written in the wrong tone for your brand
  • Restructure copy to tease out the important threads of your argument, helping you know which sections should be deleted, which should be expanded – and which need a rewrite.

I’ve edited copy about technology, medicine, sustainability, compliance and similarly technical themes – and I enjoy bringing simplicity and clarity to the densest of content.

If you have a document or website in need of an edit, please get in touch. I’ll bring a fresh look to your copy – and have it back on your desk sooner than you might think.
