Hello! I’m Rachel, a professional freelance editor based in Manchester, England. I love words and storytelling, and I can help you shape and perfect your writing project. I’m an intermediate member of The Society for Editors and Proofreaders, meaning you can expect a high standard of work from me. As well as working for independent clients and writers, I also work with publishing houses and businesses.

How can I help?

Making sure your work shines is hugely important, as it helps get your message across to readers. My services include copy-editing and proofreading to smooth out your writing, eradicate errors, and make the text more readable. I can also assess the bigger picture when it comes to fiction – character, plot, pacing, and the like – with a professional, honest critique.

In a nutshell, I can take your writing from draft level to being ready for publication.

What do I edit?

Fiction editing is my specialism, particularly young adult and fantasy. I have a background in literature and creative writing, and stories are my passion. That said, I can also work on general non-fiction, IT/tech material, and web or marketing content. Variety is one of the things I love about my work!
