Can I help?

You've spent hours writing your novel, dissertation, article or blog post. I'm here to ensure your words are correct and convey the message you want them to. I can offer you peace of mind so that you can focus on the content of your text.

I'm Victoria, a freelance proofreader and editor based in Plymouth (UK). I offer bespoke proofreading and editing services for independent authors, academics, writers and businesses. I also offer an early manuscript review (beta reading) service for independent authors.


Contact me today and I’d be delighted to offer you a sample edit so that you can evaluate my services with a real example.

​​Which level of editing do you need? What is a style sheet? How do you edit your own writing?

You can find the answers on my resources page.

"Victoria has done some terrific beta reading and proof-editing for me. I was amazed at how quickly and efficiently she was able to work. Her words are kind and encouraging, which is such a relief to a shy writer, and yet she doesn’t miss a thing: grammar, punctuation, formatting, fact checking, consistency, style and more. She is the person I want to edit my work."
