Hello, I'm Sarah. I provide writing, copy-editing and proofreading services, helping you communicate clearly with your readers.
Following five years’ editorial work in-house for publishers including Hodder & Stoughton, I’ve been freelance since 2006. Other clients include HarperCollins, Huffington Post, Lion Hudson, World Vision, The Salvation Army, and many more. My specialisms include biographies, self-help, Christian devotionals and Bible commentaries, international development, charities' supporter communications and annual reports, and other non-fiction projects.
My experience is backed up by a BA degree in Linguistics and English Language, an MA in Language Studies, and industry-standard training in copywriting, editing and proofreading.
I ensure that any words leaving my desk do so with all the apostrophes in the right places, so you can be assured of compelling copy and engaged readers.
I look forward to working with you.
