Copyediting, proofreading, and editorial assistance

With nearly fifteen years’ experience as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader, I am committed to polishing my clients’ texts to a publishable standard while remaining true to each writer’s voice. I specialise in the arts and academic writing but am open to texts of nearly any nature. Further, I am comfortable working with both native and non-native English speakers, American or British English, and a variety of writing styles. My clients have included arts institutions and publishing houses; scholars, graduate students, and artists; and advertising agencies and small businesses.

Since 2018, I have also worked as an editorial assistant for the Art Souvenir series published by Gudrun Publishing.

Client testimonial:

"I was delighted to have had Shauna as the proofreader of my PhD thesis and would highly recommend her to those in need of a thorough proofreading service with great attention to detail. I was in particular very grateful for her proactive approach to questions of wording and style due to her experience with academic writing. It was a pleasure to work with Shauna, for her friendly, quick and precise communication ensured that her suggestions fit the frame of my work and greatly improved its readability."
