Editing Ireland, Editor Tipperary

Write better, not more

People often make mistakes when they write. Some struggle with grammar; others use too many words or lose sight of what they really want to say. I tidy language and fix your mistakes.

Word Works offers three levels of editorial service:

Writing

I cut out jargon and excess to deliver crisp, simple copy. I write to fit the purpose. Typically, this would be for an annual report, other corporate report or newsletter.

Copy-editing

If you need a pedantic, nit-picking copy-editor, that’s Word Works. I take responsibility for punctuation, typos, spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, while watching over details and continuity issues.

Proofreading

Proofreading is the last stage, and involves working on the final proofs of a publication (e-text or hard copy) with all elements – type, photos and illustrations – in place. At this stage, Word Words checks accuracy, pagination, audio, visual or navigation links.

Please take a look at portfolio.

Note: I do not evaluate works of fiction. I recommend you have your dialogue, characters, pacing and plot reviewed by peer group, specialist fiction editor and/or literary agent. I do proofread fiction.
