Hello and welcome to Beyond the Proof editing and proofreading

Editing and proofreading are essential to the writing process, and have the potential to transform good writing into great results. As a dedicated and experienced freelance editor, my goal is to help you achieve success with your written work by looking at the big picture, as well as the tiny details.

My focus is simple:

  • Understand what you want to achieve with your writing
  • Edit your work using my gentle yet thorough approach to meet your audience’s expectations
  • Provide ongoing guidance and advice to strengthen or streamline your ideas and content
  • Build lasting partnerships based on trust, common goals, and professionalism

You’ve worked countless hours to brainstorm, plan, draft, and revise your material. After so much effort, you want to make sure that your work is polished and refined. Allow me to guide you through grammar, spelling, punctuation, terminology, semantics, clarity, consistency, and flow while you focus on what you do best—sharing your stories with your readers and presenting your ideas to the world.

I would be happy to discuss how I can help you progress beyond the proof. Let’s get started.
