No matter how eloquent your English, how poetic your prose or how graceful your grammar, it’s still all too easy to end up with a typo in the miffle middle of your sentence. Oops, see what I mean?

It is always much harder to spot your own written errors than it is for someone else, with a fresh pair of eyes, checking your wording for you. Even prize-winning authors need copy-editors and proofreaders to clean up their written word before publishing!

Let Corten Editorial be your fresh pair of eyes and help you to present a professional image to your potential and existing customers, or even your own staff, by improving your written communication and documents.

I cover many types of written content, including the following:

• Books (fiction and non-fiction)

• Brochures / marketing materials

• Website content (text)

• Reports

• Proposals

• Business requirements documents

• Presentations

• Training manuals

• Letters/emails

• Essays/dissertations/theses/articles

If you have some written content that you would like me to copy-edit/proofread that does not fall into any of the above areas, feel free to email me for a quotation as the list above is not exhaustive and I would love to help you.

I provide separate proofreading and copy-editing services, as well as a combined copy-editing and proofreading service (sometimes called proof-editing). If you aren’t sure what you need, I’m happy to advise you. Details of all of these services are given on my ‘How I Can Help’ page.
