Editing Services

The Right Word offers a range of English language editing services, from basic text editing through what is called sub-editing in journalism to the traditional sense of editing a whole book.

I like to work in very close co-operation with the original author of the text to ensure that his or her intended meanings are expressed in a consistent and successful way. Often it is necessary to provide links between passages written at different times and to supply background ideas and explanations which the author has taken for granted. Sometimes a passage needs expanding; more often, the editor is likely to suggest cuts in order to make a text more coherent or accessible to the reader.

If you are looking for an editor for your book and think that I might share your enthusiasm for it, please contact me to discuss sending a sample.
