I’ve been a full-time freelance editor and proofreader since 2013.
A safe pair of hands
I’m an Advanced Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). Here’s my entry on the CIEP directory. I’m committed to follow our code of practice, Ensuring Editorial Excellence, which assures high standards of editorial work and customer care.
As part of my active involvement in the CIEP, I’m one of the tutors for its training courses and the coordinator of its Liverpool group.
Who I’ve worked for and what I’ve done
I’ve helped a wide range of clients including business customers, publishers, other organisations, and individuals. You can find details of my past work in my portfolio:
I worked in IT for 26 years as a programmer, analyst, project manager and team leader, working for organisations in the transport, financial services, government, retail and telecommunications sectors. This gave me great experience of working in a well-organised, methodical way, with an emphasis on thoroughness and attention to detail, which has been valuable in my editorial work. In another guise as an author, I had a sports history book published (later self-published as an ebook), and had a number of articles published in magazines and online.
‘Graham has done several proofreading and copy-editing jobs for me in the past 12 months and I have always been delighted with the standard of work returned to me. The work has always been carried out with thoroughness and efficiency, and importantly, to schedule. I am always happy to put work his way and would happily recommend him to others.’
