Hi! My name is Lindsay Corten, and I’d love to help you improve your written communication, whether that’s the marketing materials for your business or that novel you’ve finally got round to writing.
Yes, you’ve guessed it, I’m a professional copy-editor and proofreader of books and business content, based in Burton-On-Trent.
If you run a business, the chances are that you are going to be communicating with your existing and potential customers in writing in some way, whether that is through your website, a regular newsletter, marketing brochures/flyers or even on social media. Even if you have a good standard of written English, it’s always more difficult to spot your own mistakes (and any ambiguities) in what you’ve written, and that’s where a professional proofreader can help. I’d love to give your writing a bit of a polish and tidy up to help you stand out from the competition – in a good way! An unfortunate typo in the middle of your website may make your website memorable, but it is unlikely to win any new customers; however, communicating clearly what you do and how well you do it is one thing that could set you apart from your rivals.
In addition to working with small businesses (and not-so-small businesses), I also have a passion for helping authors to make their book(s) the best they can possibly be through good copy-editing and proofreading, particularly for authors going down the self-publishing route.
I have varied experience of copy-editing and/or proofreading a wide range of projects for different clients, including books (both fiction and non-fiction), websites, marketing materials (print and electronic), policy and process documents, business reports, presentations, and many more besides.
I would love to assist you by making your writing the best it can be, so please do get in touch.
