Professional proofreading and copy-editing services


Caroline Barden Proofreader - proofreading services

‘We truly couldn’t have finished the book without Caroline’s support and we would recommend her services to anyone. The proofreading of the book elevated and polished the text. Thank you, Caroline!’ The Women’s Organisation

My name is Caroline Barden, and I offer proofreading and copy-editing services. I can help you prepare your writing for publication or submission. I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) at Intermediate level and follow their Code of practice. I have qualifications in both proofreading and copy-editing (see below).

I have specialist knowledge in the areas of education and social care. This has been helpful for publishers and students I have worked with. My clients have found that it gives ‘added value’ to my work.

‘Caroline’s background in education has been a real bonus for us, bringing very tangible “added value” to the task.’ Black Sheep Press

My own interest in creative writing, inspired by a course I took at Writing on the Wall in Liverpool, gives me a particular regard for working with writers of fiction, and I have worked successfully, and with pleasure, with several published authors.

Other areas of my work include social histories, academic texts in a range of subjects, job applications and website content. My clients include publishing companies, biographers, businesses and students.

Click to contact me today and let me know how I can help you. I will assess your project and give you a fast, no obligation quote tailored to your own requirements.

‘I went with Caroline because of both her understanding of my subject discipline and also because of her friendly approach. The service has been excellent.’ PhD student

‘You were highly recommended to me and I am so grateful that you made the whole process so smooth, user friendly and supportive.’ Senior lecturer

I look forward to hearing from you.
