If it's getting the message across, does it matter if copy is poorly written and badly spelled? Well, yes, because it's a truth universally acknowledged that first impressions count – so if your blog / brochure / website / presentation is riddled with errors, it won't have a great impact on your audience.
Green Gables Editing provides a thorough service, not just proofreading and editing, but also fact checking and making sure your copy is error-free. I will see to it that your text is clear, concise, grammatically correct, and makes perfect sense – all while ensuring it's your voice, your brand and your identity being heard.
With my background in journalism and PR, I know how to structure news, features, marketing material and corporate messaging.
Your business has its own identity; its own voice. You need that voice to be consistent across all platforms, whether it's a corporate brochure, a press release or a company newsletter.
More importantly, your messaging needs to be professionally produced and perfectly presented. I can not only write, edit and/or proofread your materials, I will also maintain your values through the language used.

It can be hard to let go of your creative work. To let other eyes see your baby! But if you want to get to the next step with your creative work – enter a competition or send to an agent – it's important that your composition is as clean and error-free as possible.

If you're a student with a reading/writing disorder or you have trouble transcribing your ideas onto paper, I can edit and clean it up.
