COPYEDITING and Proofreading
No matter how many times you have checked and rechecked your copy, sometimes typos, errors and clunky text can sneak through. And there’s nothing worse than that sinking feeling of discovering a mistake after it’s too late. Which is where I come in.
At FelicityHaythornEditrice, I provide an affordable digital and print layout copyediting and proofreading service to polish your copy and make it zing off the page. After 10 years’ working on the busy production desk of award-winning business magazine Property Week, I know a thing or two about writing eye-grabbing headlines, tightening up flabby copy and ensuring perfect spelling and grammar. I nurture the words you’ve written, reviewing, editing and restructuring them until they’re succinct, mistake-free and easy to read. The final copy will do its job: engage readers and customers, and sell your business, product or service.
Among my clients are business magazines Drapers, EuroProperty and Building; customer magazines River Life, Removals & Storage, Girlguiding, the Royal Marsden, the Royal Marsden Private Care and Land Business; digital luxury men's title Lusso; white papers for the RICS; and independent magazine and book Lost in London and lifestyle finance bible How to get the Best Return From Your Life and Your Money.
I work on-screen, using annotations/sticky notes on a PDF or track changes in a Word document. This means that regardless of location, I can offer you the same high standard of proofreading and copy-editing. Working on-screen saves paper and energy, and also means I am able to make full use of macros and software to help with accuracy and efficiency.
My 14 years’ experience of creating magazines means I love coming up with compelling content for all sorts of media. Whether it’s for a website, brochure, brand magazine, book, digital newsletter, advert or social media feed, succinct, engaging text is key. I can write great, eye-catching copy with clear call-to-actions and a distinct voice tailored to your brand that will be hugely seductive in terms of sales.
I have written lifestyle features for a variety of magazines, among them south-west glossy MANOR, London-based magazines Sloane Square, The Portman, Victoria and The Northbank; and independent publications Lost in London and Yealmpton Press. My areas of expertise are food, wellbeing, lone parenting and divorce.
Fresh content is a great way to shoot up to the top of Google searches and get new people to your website. I can help you to set up a blog, and write regular posts – one a day, or a week, or a month – to get people talking about you and your business. There’s a reason everyone’s doing it.
I can implement creative social media strategies to build your brands and your audience. Whether you want to dominate one channel or reach out to people across the social media board – Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Google+ – I can help by sourcing beautiful imagery, scheduling interesting posts, responding to comments and engaging with users. This way, your profile will continue to grow.
