As such, I possess excellent writing, editing and communications skills. I am an experienced writer and editor with over 30 publications (including a co-edited a collection of essays, and edited a second book containing over 600 documents) and great communicator having delivered 35 presentations in Europe and North America.
What will you get from me? I have extensive experience helping people improve essays, theses and books; edited documents; and proofread and copy-edited multiple works for publication. I can develop your argument, tighten your language, assist in spelling and grammar, perfect your structure, ensure accuracy with proofreading, and offer critical and constructive advice. I am flexible, efficient and positive, always happy to provide assistance but won't take offence if it's not taken on board. Having edited a book with 15 authors I understand everybody has their own style so I can work to what suits writers.

As a highly skilled researcher the post involved researching, editing and proofreading important documents. One of my achievements was accurately transcribing, editing and publishing a book of over 600 documents (total: 130,000 words).
One of the major tasks this post entailed was accurately transcribing and publishing documents. Among the items for publication was preparing a 33,000 word article. It required a keen eye for detail, proofreading multiple drafts, and successfully delivering the text to the publisher within a relatively short timeline.
Royal Irish Academy
As proofreader for the DIB I edited and proofed over 100 biographical entries, ranging from 400 to 2,000 words. This entailed checking spelling and grammar, amending and simplifying awkward sentences, and double-checking sources.
