Proof-editing Services

In today’s publishing world proof-editing is increasingly superseding copy-editing and proofreading.

Have you finished writing your novel or collection of short fiction? Does it need proofreading and polishing before you submit it for publication?

Barbara is offering her services as a proof-editor.

The author of seven published books and the recipient of more than thirty writing awards, Barbara holds a Master of Creative Writing from Auckland University, certification from the NZ Writer’s College in copy-editing and proofreading and certification in fiction editing from the Society of Editors and Publishers (SFEP) in the UK.

Barbara uses UK English, the New Oxford Style Manual, the Concise Oxford Dictionary and she prefers to work in Microsoft Word although she does work in hard copy using British standard proof-correction marks. She specializes in editing fiction and her basic charge is $40 per hour. She offers substantial discounts to NZSA members and to clients referred by contacts in the writing world.
