The proofreader is REQUIRED to do the following:

[2] check the characters dialogue, based on the judgement on natural speaking and suitability for that character.

[3] Check the paragraph transitions for readability and smoothness (in reader POV).

[4] Adjust paragraph (e.g. suggest a position that starts a new paragraph) if needed.

[5] Suggest the use of words in any sentence(s) to enhance the text, based on your thought in terms of the context.

    Hi, I am Richard. I graduate from Cardiff University in 2014 with a first class honours in English Literature and Language. I will provide photographic evidence of certificates upon request. As such I understand the science of language, the arty side of English and have an entire shelf on my bookcase buckling under my collection of tomes on grammar. Fun reading. I focus my degree around Psycholinguistics, which is the study of language behaviours and processing. I am currently undertaking postgraduate studies in the same area. I write short stories, attend writer circles, and critique fiction in my spare time for other writers. I have a few short stories published a few magazines, and have been paid previously for my editorial skills. I love playing with language, regularly attempt cryptic crosswords due to the greatest of some of the clues.

    Whether it is a creative endeavour or business documentation, the conveying of a thought in clear, well-rounded English is the principle which underpins my approach. I greatly enjoy helping the author optimise their words and find their voice. Attention to detail, a flair for writing, and honest, thoughtful, constructive feedback are my strengths. Words are powerful, and choosing the right ones is an art. I can take the author from inception through to proofreading. I find the best work is done through mentoring where the exploration of ideas is possible. I bring my creative side to literature and a wealth of experience to business documentation. Both are professionally undertaken. With an extensive background in business, I have the skills to write business documentation: policy and procedure; strategic plans; annual reports.
