Philip Moore - Editor

Waterlooville, United Kingdom

I aim to provide an excellent service in close relationship with authors, so they feel the most is made of their creativity.

Overview

I love pouring over proofs - every word and punctuation mark - to make sure that each piece of work reads and looks the best it can be. However, there is no point being passionate about something without qualifications and experience to back it up. I am a St Andrews University graduate with scientific, legal and financial services qualifications. Although I have particular experience in legal and financial service proofreading, I also undertake work involving other subjects. I am an Advanced Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
