Proofreading 

Judith Coyle Editorial, in partnership with Cronshaw Editing, provides a truly specialised, high quality proofreading and copy editing service. 

Enhance the accuracy, appearance, readability and POWER of your text with our high quality proofreading and copy editing services.  We will proofread your essay, academic paper, resume/CV, research proposal, newsletter, magazine, journal, article, business plan, blog post, website content, short story, novel or non-fiction book. We are reliable and thorough. We work with businesses, book and magazine publishers, independent authors, academics, undergraduate and postgraduate students, churches and charities.

Choose from one of these levels of service or combine all three:

Level One - correction of grammar, punctuation, spelling and spacing. 

Level Two - proofreading plus more extensive editing to improve grammar. This may include structural editing whereby we shift words and paragraphs round to improve clarity and effect.

Level Three - improving word choice, readability and Anglicising - especially suitable for foreign writers.
