I am an experienced editor and proofreader who offers competitive rates, efficient turnaround, meticulous attention to detail and sensitivity to different clients' needs.
Editing and proofreading: a day job and a passion!

I am a professional, experienced editor and proofreader. I genuinely love what I do. Not only am I passionate about clear and expressive communication in writing, but I love the variety of clients and documents I work with.


I am just as much at home working on fiction as non-fiction, as comfortable with lengthy reports as with short letters. Because I like to engage with clients and their texts, I provide a uniquely personalised service that ensures you get the absolute best out of your document.

Writing, storytelling and public speaking

By night (and sometimes by day) I am a writer, storyteller, folklorist and public speaker. My first book, Mysteries, was published in 2008. Since then I have been published several times in anthologies and magazines. Writing in a wide variety of styles/genres has informed my editing work.


I tell stories for adults and children, and give talks and workshops on the theme of mythology, folklore and the power of stories. I have spoken at many exciting events. I also teach creative writing. If you're interested in any of these services, please contact me here or through my creative/academic site: http://chrissyderbyshire.wordpress.com/
