I proofread and edit manuscripts across most disciplines. I have a specialist interest in English Literature, Creative Writing and Religious Studies.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a PhD in English Literature (Lancaster University), a Master's degree in Religious Studies (University of London) and a 'first class' BA honours degree in English/Religious Studies (West London Institute). In 1991 I was awarded the Gompertz and Spalding prize for my contribution to scholarship.

I have taught English/Creative Writing for many years in Higher Education. I now run a business for proofreading, editing and writing services.

Prices fluctuate from job to job, but as a guideline you can expect to be charged around ₤10/15 per thousand words for proofreading, and ₤20/25 per thousand words for editing. When the word count goes up, the price comes down.

Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Not applicable because I work online and have no physical contact with my students.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
My students send me their manuscripts by attachment and I correct and return them, highlighting my suggested amendments.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I am a postdoctural research fellow at the University of Cumbria.
Where and with whom did you train?
I received my PhD from Lancaster University.
Tell me about some of your current students.
My students come from all over the world. They are often undergraduate or postgraduate students; though I also receive much work from creative writers and various industries that require assistance with their writing.
