I offer a professional, efficient and accurate proofreading and content, feature and copywriting service. I help customers with information production, precision and presentation following more than 18 years' experience in all areas of the written word.

Trained in proofreading in-house and by the Publishing Training Centre and Society for Editors and Proofreaders, I help organisations and individuals present a professional image through clear and correct information. I ensure that written information is easily readable, logical, concise and free from errors by paying minute attention to the details.

My content, feature and copywriting service enables clients to project a strong, clear message that effectively engages the target readership.

Do not hesitate to get in touch if you feel that I can help with a specific project or for further information.

Before setting up GG Editorial Services in 2013, I obtained nine years' experience in information, communication, marketing and training delivery roles in the charity sector (National Trust, Big Issue Foundation, Home-Start, Disability Nottinghamshire and The Rowan Organisation).

Prior to working in the charity sector, I gained four years' experience as a Senior Information Researcher and Proofreader for a funding information service. I gained intensive in-house training in proofreading, copy-editing, information research, copywriting and training delivery. I researched, wrote and proofread reports, articles and press releases on all aspects of EU and UK grant funding. In addition, I delivered tailored training courses on the use of a funding database and grant funding in general.
