I’m an experienced, friendly proofreader based in Norwich, England. A member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), I have a passion for the English language and a major obsession with getting things right. As a freelance proofreader, I work closely with publishers, authors and academics to help fine-tune their manuscripts ready for publication. It’s something I love doing. I’m happy working in a wide range of genres and provide different levels of proofreading depending on your needs – every project is different and every writer has their own style and way of working.
I’m very comfortable with both UK and US English and generally proofread in Microsoft Word or PDF. However, if you would like your manuscript proofread in hard copy, I can annotate using British Standards Institution (BSI) proof-correction marks. It’s entirely up to you.
If you think I may be able to help or if you just need some advice, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Contact Paddy tab.
Where would we be at Summertime Publishing without Paddy The Proofreader? Please promise you will never leave us. Your eagle eye and meticulous attention to detail make your work exemplary.
