Free estimates

Sample corporate copy edit and assessment
I will provide a free copy edit and readability assessment of one of your corporate documents. Email your document (up to 500 words) to me at [email protected] with a note about its intended purpose and audience. I will return a marked up version with comments and suggestions to you promptly.

Project estimates
I provide fast, free estimates for projects.

  • For proofreading and editing work, email me at [email protected] with your document’s word count and a sample from the middle section. Please also set out your requirements and expectations. I will assess the level of edit required and anticipated duration of the job.
  • For writing work, email [email protected] with details of your requirements and the length of the document you need.

In your email, please also provide me with your name, address and telephone number.

I make every effort to stay within my estimate. If your job takes longer than anticipated, I will contact you immediately to explain why and seek your advice before continuing.

All information that you give me will remain confidential.

The agreement

Once you agree to proceed, I will draw  up an agreement which  clearly outlines the project details and expectations. It will specify rates, the level of editing that we agree is required, and payment terms. We will each sign a copy.

Once the agreement is signed, email any additional material to me: [email protected].

What happens next?

I work on proofs and edits electronically using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes.  You can see my editorial and proofing changes and compare your document with earlier drafts.

I will return your completed job by email.

All documents will be deleted from my email and hard drive 30 days after I receive the final payment.


I will issue invoices either on completion of the project or at agreed times for long projects.

Payment is by direct bank deposit or Paypal and within 7 days of the invoice date.
