Proofreading and editing services
Many documents and reports need proofreading or an editor’s critical eye, even if only for a final check of style, grammar, spelling, consistency and a little professional polish.
Others need a more extensive make-over, particularly if a number of authors have contributed different sections for a report. Each will have their own writing style, use of spelling (was that UK, US or Australian English you wanted? ), punctuation and formatting for headlines, tables and bulleted or numbered lists.
My role is to resolve issues of style and consistency with you, then deliver a document which reads smoothly, clearly and coherently from start to finish. As a former magazine editor and a working journalist today, I’m accustomed to the tight deadlines and fast turnarounds associated with tender documents and expressions of interest.
Recent proofreading and editing projects for clients include:
I am a qualified trainer (Certificate IV in Workplace Assessment and Training from RMIT University), and so am well-equipped to edit training material.
Thank you so much for the great article in the SMH on Saturday. It really expressed what Shirlaws is about, so thank you for putting pen to paper so well. Everyone in the group thought it was great and we have already had a number of people contact us after reading the article.
