Contact Catherine Pernickety Kate; Pernickety Kate offers friendly, professional proofreading and editing help so that your writing makes the right impression from the start. Proofreading is a thorough check of spellings, punctuation and grammar, plus a check for any inconsistencies such as heading style, spacing, graph and table wording etc.
Make sure your readers focus on your message, not your mistakes! Editing covers proofreading, as above, but looks at the bigger picture. Does your text flow? Is it in a logical order? Is the meaning clear? Is the content specific? Is the tone suitable for the audience? Is it visually clear on the page? Does the whole thing mean what you want it to say?
I specialise in improving business writing for small or large businesses (from reports and training materials to advertising and website copy). However, I am also happy to work with individuals or for one-off projects, eg, CVs, self-publishing.
My charges are minimum £10 for anything up to 1,000 words. £20 – £25 per hour. Quotes depend on the type and quality of written text.
Basic proofreading of plain text takes around an hour for 3,000 words. Email me anytime. Please phone me 7 days a week
