COPY EDITING SERVICES
Clear language communicates powerfully.
Powerful, clear writing is the key to effective communication. Writing is like music in that way: if your writing doesn't groove, you may have the greatest ideas in the world, but they won't penetrate your audience's consciousness. The tone of your writing is your voice, and being intentional about style and flavour harmonises your message. That's where editing and proofreading services can really make a difference - by helping your words to sing.
I edit and proofread academic writing, creative writing (including fiction) and all kinds of corporate copy, from brochures to blog posts, for both online and print media.
I can also help you to hone your CV and cover letter, giving you the best chance of getting the job you deserve.
I work with writers from around the globe and excel at helping non-native speakers of English - especially those from Spanish-, Catalan- or German-speaking backgrounds.
The services I provide include:
Proofreading - mechanical editing, checking your spelling and punctuation, and making sure that your text conforms to your publisher's style guidelines;
Copy Editing - correcting errors in language usage, recommending style transformations and questioning inconsistencies in logic and tone;
Academic Writing Guidance - editorial services and coaching to help your academic writing meet its full potential; and
- Creative Consultancy - in-depth, personalised workshopping, providing an intuitive and sensitive balance of input and feedback to help your creative project flourish;

I have a research Masters degree, as well as Bachelors degrees in Creative Industries (majoring in Creative Writing) and Jazz Performance. I have been working as a professional editor and proofreader since 2017.
Music and writing are my twin passions. Musicians communicate: when we're in our element, we're conveying ideas, telling stories and sharing visions. If you're hoping to do any of those things - whether in academic, professional or creative contexts - I can help you to make your ideas swing out. I take a personal approach, to help you say clearly what's on your mind.
I love language like I love music. As a bassist, I see my job as helping the band to sound the best it can. As a copy editor, I take great joy in helping your writing to groove hard.
