Editing and Proofreading

Editing
Writing is a specialised skill.
Many artists, designers and gallerists find it hard to express themselves in words.
You may not think you can write, but you might just need a good editor!
My strength as an editor is that I have a keen eye for narrative structure.
Human beings are story telling creatures and we like nothing better than a good tale. From an artist’s statement or catalogue essay to a 140 character tweet, every piece of writing is telling a story.
I have extensive experience in the art and design industry.
I can help you tell your story with flawless grammar, impact and flair.
Nobody knows your work or business better than you. Have a go and I’ll shape your writing into something professional and effective.

Editing includes:

  • narrative structure, clarity and flow suggestions
  • cutting to required length
  • spelling, grammar and punctuation corrections
  • style corrections
  • tone consistency

Proofreading
It is almost impossible to proofread your own work.
Your brain is so amazing that it sees what should be on the page, not necessarily what is actually there.
If you prefer, I can just proofread your work for the nuts and bolts stuff.
Proofreading is quicker and costs less.

Proofreading includes:

  • removing typos
  • spelling, grammar and punctuation corrections
  • style corrections

 Types of writing you may want edited or proofread include:

  • artist’s statements
  • product descriptions
  • grant applications
  • catalogue essays
  • media releases
  • website copy
  • feature articles
  • creative writing
