Sophie Gillespie Editing

Berkshire

I am an expert in written communication. I copy edit and proofread for publishing houses, academic journals, research institutes and think tanks, and I love my job! I do what I do because I love words, and I have a talent for crafting language – making a piece of writing succinct, elegant and grammatically correct. I am a professional-level member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), which means my training and experience have been vetted and endorsed by a panel of industry experts. I work for a number traditional publishing houses, completing both copy editing and proofreading projects with a speciality in non-fiction humanities books. I am also interested in literary fiction and medicine and science books for a general audience. Recent, repeat clients include: Dorling Kindersley Bloomsbury Academic Routledge Joffe Books Stanford University Press British Film Institute Security Dialogue journal Overseas Development Institute (ODI) IED Afrique University of London School of Advanced Study Another key area of my work is the editing I do for international research institutes and think tanks, focussing on international development. My work with European-based organizations has led to my being recommended to partner institutes in the developing world, and as a result I have undertaken a lot of work copy editing reports written by researchers for whom English is a second language. I really value the opportunity to make a contribution to issues I care about, by ensuring the important work of researchers is communicated effectively, elegantly, accurately and with impact. Thank you for reading, and I very much hope to work with you in the near future!

What do you love most about your job?

Learning something every time I edit or proofread a book, paper or article about a new topic. Helping writers craft highly readable prose; making use of the wonderful English language to deploy the perfect word choices and grammatical structure to put across the writer's message elegantly and effectively.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Knowing that I had a skill that could help so many more potential clients beyond just the company that I used to work for. I wanted to expand my horizons, work flexibly, and reach out to as many people as possible, sharing my skills and learning new things from writers all over the world.

Why should our clients choose you?

I certainly have the skills to do the job you need - I am certified as a professional editor by the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, who have vetted and endorsed my qualifications, experience and references. But more than that - I have an absolute passion for what I do. I have never loved a job so much! I have been told that my enthusiasm shines through in the quality of my work, as well as my general work ethic and attitude towards customer service.

Much of the work has been done but it all needs to be updated - again - it is currently in Word for Mac 2011 version 14.7.7. There is not a great deal of work and it would not take someone who is used to this very long. Many thanks.
