Welcome to the home of Word Nerd Editing.

As a professional editor and proofreader, it is my job to lift your language and polish your prose. You may be a student, academic, self-publishing author, or even a small-business owner with a simple website. Either way, editing and proofreading are vital steps in the production of any written material intended for eyes other than your own. That’s where I come in. I provide a professional, reliable and friendly service, whatever your editorial needs. When we work together, you can be assured that:

  • you are working with someone who understands the nuts and bolts of language
  • you can be involved in the process as much or as little as you like
  • your work will remain recognisably your own
  • you will retain full control over whether to accept or reject any changes I make or suggest
  • you are working with someone who continually strives to expand their skills and knowledge – I regularly undertake professional development training, at my own expense, to keep my skills as relevant and up to date as they can be.

I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and adhere to their recommended code of practice.

Get in touch by using the contact form, or email me to discuss your requirements.

I look forward to hearing from you – Lil
