Proofreading and Copyediting

Since 2006 I have worked as a freelance proofreader, copy editor and index compiler on a range of projects. I have worked with professional historians, PhD researchers, third sector workers and creative writers. Projects have included paid work for Cambridge and Oxford University Presses, Routledge and Ashgate as well as voluntary work on articles published in major peer reviewed journals.

“In fifteen years of writing and publishing, Rebecca Darley is the most talented copyeditor and proofreader I have encountered. Her eye for detail, the precision of her edits and her ability to massage a piece of writing into its best possible form are second to none. Every piece I have given to her has been turned around with speed and indeed it is perhaps her ability to get to grips with the material within a short time frame that makes her such an effective editor. I would recommend her without reservation.”
