Welcome!

Hi, I'm Rachael, a thorough, flexible and reliable copyeditor and proofreader based in Wiltshire, UK. I copyedit and proofread fiction and board games for publishers, independent authors and designers, and have been freelance since 2015. I'm a Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and I trained with the Publishing Training Centre (PTC) and the CIEP. You can find details of my qualifications and training here.

I keep my skills and knowledge up to date through regular training courses with OpenLearn, Future Learn, and professional editing and publishing organisations.

Rachael’s work on my new anthology exceeded my expectations, and has been paramount in ensuring the language is accurate and consistent throughout the book. The stories are set in different places around the world, and Rachael adjusted the text to make the spelling/punctuation match accordingly. I am very grateful for the work, and won’t hesitate to hire her for future projects. How it was completed so fast I don’t know. I can only assume that Rachael is some sort of wizard.” 

Luke Melia, Author

Richard Wolfrik Galland, Sabrewolf Games 


"Rachael ensured consistency and clarity across both the components and rules of a new game I was hoping to pitch to publishers. Her thoroughness and attention to detail ensured that I could present the best version of my game and maximise its chances of success."
