My name is Anne Gillion, and I am a professional copy-editor and proofreader. I work mainly with fiction and non-fiction authors, who fall into two categories: self-publishing independents or writers with a mainstream publishing contract.
Outside of publishing, I have a number of small business owners on my client list. Typically, this work involves writing press releases, editing/rewriting website or blog content, and editing copy for print publications.
I am also an approved proofreader for the Department for Education’s Standards and Testing Agency. My contract entails checking Key Stage 1 and 2 English, Maths, and Science test papers and correcting mistakes before the tests ‘go live’.
And, last but not least, I am a professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading. To find out more, you can read my directory entry by clicking on the button below:
I have already started work on a new project and I am looking forward to working with Anne again. As a first time author I found her steadying hand and overviews most helpful. She was efficient and diligent while responding promptly. The editing work was very good, inspiring confidence in the finished project.
Anne, thank you so much – you have been such a great help in writing my book. Your clear understanding of the English language gained over many years as a professional editor, freelance writer and proofreader has proved invaluable – I am not sure how I could have done it without you.
