Hello, my name is Peter Keighron. I can proofread and edit your text to make it a pleasure to read, not a chore. Unlike online services, like Grammarly, I provide not just ‘correct’ grammar but appropriate grammar. Good grammar is not just about putting the apostrophes in the right places and knowing when to use which or that, it’s about making your words as readable as possible.
I’m always happy to discuss your work and your particular needs at length to ensure you get exactly what you want and what your tutors, publishers, employers need.

I worked for 15 years as a professional journalist, writing for a range of publications, including The Guardian, Time Out, Sunday Express, Broadcast, The Stage, History Today, Media Week, Film Monthly and Televisual. I have also worked at the BBC in documentary television, scripting and research.

So I have had my own writing proofread and improved by numerous professionals, at the highest standard. This experience has been invaluable in forming the basis of my proofreading skills.

I also have extensive experience working on text for academic disciplines, theses, essays, dissertations, etc. This work is not just about getting the text right but also making sure everything – citations, bibliographies, etc – are formatted in the required way. A lot of this work has been for students for whom English is not their first language and who, therefore, need a bit more than a standard grammar check.

So whatever kind of readership your work is aimed at I will make sure it is presented in as correct and readable form as possible.

I will spend time getting to understand the context of your work and make sure the style of your text is right for the kind of readership your work is aimed at.

I don’t put any limit on the number of read-throughs – it is finished when you are happy with it. I provide a friendly, fast and very reasonably priced service.

I would be happy to provide references from former clients who can vouch for the quality of my work.
