Margaret Hunter - Editor

Isle of Man

Experienced freelance proofreader, copy-editor and formatter trained by SfEP and PTC | Helping you polish your written content and documents

Overview

Freelance professional proofreader, copy-editor and book formatter trained by SfEP (Society for Editors and Proofreaders) and PTC (Publishing Training Centre). Advanced Professional Member of SfEP. Currently marketing & PR director of SfEP.

I have a diverse range of clients including:
• mainstream publishers
• businesses
• government
• NGOs
• agencies
• independent authors

I work on general non-fiction, business documents, research reports and web content. I also have particular experience in editing and proofreading school textbooks and rewriting for non-native English speakers.
I provide editing, design and layout, and e-book formatting for self-publishing authors. Before going freelance I spent over 14 years working in information and publications in an international legal firm, a local authority and several NGOs.

How I work
• I will work in the best way to suit you, either onscreen or on hard copy.
• I aim to help you polish your writing for better reader engagement.
• I know when to intervene and when to leave alone.
• I won’t impose my own voice in your writing because I think it sounds nicer than yours.
• I can quickly learn your house style, or devise one for you, and make sure it’s used consistently.
• I will endeavour to be clear about what I need from you and will clearly explain what I have done with your work.
• I’ll always deliver work on time if I have what I need from you and will be transparent about my pricing.
