‘Emma worked on a difficult text of mine and handled it with care and sensitivity. She showed a remarkable eye for detail when it came to grammar and spelling, and a superb intuition for punctuation – one of my own particular shortcomings. She also alerted me to instances in the text that were liable to cause offence or might infringe on copyright, potentially saving me from a world of trouble down the line. Lastly, and most importantly, she made me laugh – never underestimate the value of an editor who can make you laugh.’

‘Emma is an excellent writer with a keen eye for detail, having devised a content marketing strategy for our blog and social media channels, all while working across different cultures of communication. I have complete trust in her proofreading and editing skills, having seen how she has brought our organisation’s work to new and expanding target audiences.’

‘I used Emma’s services to copy-edit and proofread my first two novels. She worked amazingly efficiently and provided me with the most thorough and helpful feedback, highlighting not only mistakes but also areas that needed further clarification. I wholeheartedly recommend her as an efficient, accurate and helpful proofreader and editor, and I hope I have the chance to work with her again.’

Hello!

A picture of Emma Lawson proofreading

Thank you for stopping by. I’m a freelance copywriter, copyeditor and proofreader. I can work with you to ensure that your words are meaningful and have maximum impact.

After graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Politics and International Relations, I worked in East Africa for several years and have written, proofread and edited copy for organisations ranging from established human rights NGOs to social enterprise start-ups.

I have covered issues such as adult literacy, community-based tourism, ethical fashion, social media and mental health, and have passed accredited training in proofreading and copyediting with the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP).

When I’m not running my business, I’m usually running after my children in the Welsh countryside.
