Meticulosity by name...

A rogue typo, jumbled table or missing reference can make the difference between connecting with your audience or alienating them. I apply a thorough, systematic approach to each element of every text. Check out my Services page to see how I can help you.

I'm thrilled with the work Jenny produced. She worked quickly and well within my deadline, confirming receipt of my brief within an hour, and creating a first draft within 24 hours. She was remarkably easy to work with; her well-timed, pertinent questions supported me to consider my audience more carefully, leading to the creation of a more effective document. Her genuine interest and enthusiasm also helped to motivate me, and her work will certainly enhance our community project. Her work was of impeccable quality, I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I am most impressed with Jenny Williamson's proof-reading of the text of my new book. Her work is accurate, thoughtful and helpful. She picked up immediately on the particular informal style I was using and the vast majority of her comments have now been incorporated into the text. Proof-reading is not just about right and wrong, but about drawing out the best features of an author's style. It's also good to be reminded how easily little irritations can creep into the style of experienced authors.
