Professional copyediting and proofreading = less stress + more profit
You’ve had another late night agonising over what you’ve written. It still doesn’t feel right but you’re not sure what to do next.
What if you had someone who could be a sounding board for your ideas and give you honest and constructive feedback on your copy?
I’ll help you lift your writing game
Whether you’re a business owner or a digital marketer, everyone needs a little feedback and support sometimes.
As an experienced editor and proofreader accredited by the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd), I’ll not only make sure your writing is free from errors, but also that it’s clear, flows well, and will hit the mark with your readers (and your clients).
Because the truth is, a spellchecker can’t pick these things up – and often you can’t either.
I’ll be looking for:
are there any spelling, grammar or punctuation mistakes?
does the piece flow logically?
is the tone right for your audience and your brand personality?
is the piece easy to read?
is there anything that’s confusing or could cause offence?
are there any potential copyright issues?
do your links work?
are your words optimised for Google (if they’re going online)?
Here’s how we can work together
Have some new content like a lead magnet, email sequence, series of blog posts or ebook that you want to perfect before you hit publish?
My One-Off Content Editing service is designed to level up your words, fast.
What you get:
- An initial assessment and quote
- Structural and /or copy editing to improve the messaging, structure, flow, clarity, credibility and readability of your content
- Suggestions to optimise your headings and subheadings for your readers and for Google

If you create regular content and want someone you can call on to edit and/or proofread several pieces throughout the month, this service is for you.
Imagine having an editor on your team who knows your writing style, who you’re writing for and what you want to achieve.
I’ll work with you to make sure your writing gives the best possible impression of your business.
What you get:
- An initial assessment call to confirm your target audience, brand voice and monthly deliverables

* This minimum service might include, for example, proofreading 4 blog posts, 4 emails and a month’s worth of batched social media content.
Need something edited and/or proofread that doesn’t fit into the services above? Or maybe you just want someone to write the thing for you? I do that too! Book a call and let’s chat about what you need.
“As a copywriter, it’s vital that the finished product I send to my clients is professionally edited and proofread. I love working with Stacey because not only is she warm and professional, but she has a high level of attention to detail. Stacey also suggests tweaks or improvements to the copy, which is wonderful. She’s like having my very own copy wing-woman. I highly recommend her.”
What I edit
Want to polish a blog post, email sequence, sales page or ebook? I can help with that.
Whether you need an editor for a one-off job or ongoing editing and proofreading support, I’ve got you covered.
I’ll edit and/or proofread:
articles for industry websites and guest blogs
... and more
How much will it cost?
Each editing job is different and the cost depends on a few things, including how much editing is needed and the word count. For a personalised quote, book a call so we can chat about what you need. I’ll then send you a proposal that’ll outline exactly what services I’ll be providing and how much it will cost, so there aren’t any surprises.
How long will it take?
Again, the time it takes to edit your document depends on how much editing is needed and the word count. If you sign up for my Monthly Editing Support service, we’ll work out the timeline at the start so we both know who’s delivering what and when. For one-off projects, it’s best to contact me as early as possible, as I’m usually booked out a few weeks in advance.
What if I don’t like or agree with your edits?
All of my edits are tracked so you can accept or reject them as you please. You have complete control and all changes are completely up to you. I also offer a complimentary call to walk you through my suggested changes and answer any questions.
Do you edit fiction?
No. While I love reading fiction, I specialise in editing for businesses (and the people who write for them). I do however know some terrific fiction editors and can give you their details if you need.
Do you edit academic theses?
No. I have done in the past but now focus on editing for businesses. I do however know some highly experienced academic editors and can give you their details if you need.
Do you edit in Word or Google Docs?
Both! I can track changes and mark-up comments in Word, Google Docs and Adobe (PDFs), and know my way around InDesign and WordPress too. I work in whatever program suits you.
What style guide do you follow?
I’ve worked with many different style guides over the years and can follow whatever guide you need me to. If your business or client doesn’t have a particular style guide, I generally follow the Australian Style Manual and Macquarie Dictionary (for Australian clients). I’m also guided by general principles of clarity, consistency and common sense.
Do you offer copywriting services too?
I sure do! Book a call and let’s chat about what you need.
