What is proofreading and why is it important?
Proofreading is the final stage in the editing process of a piece of writing. First impressions count so it is important that any piece of writing you produce looks professional and is error free.
How I can help you
I can give your writing a polished, professional finish. I will check your written document for any spelling, punctuation and grammar errors. I’ll also make sure that the style and layout are consistent throughout your written work.
I proofread using a variety of methods:
- in Microsoft Word using Track Changes
- on PDFs using the correction tools
- on paper using the British Standards Institution (BSI) proofreading symbols.
Susan very kindly offered her proofreading services to Skylarks at a time when we were launching lots of appeals as a result of the pandemic. Her willingness and experience to read through our communications has given us the confidence and assurance of consistent messaging. We are very grateful for her eagle eye and skills in helping our small hard-working parent-led charity.
