About Helen Sewell

The Services
I love writing and have produced a large amount of creative work, such as short stories, poems and song lyrics, being also a folk/blues guitarist, and have recently finished my first novel. I’ve also written non fiction, such as academic materials for teaching, website copy and blog posts.

I have a First Class BA (Hons) in English Language and Linguistics, and 20 years experience as an EFL teacher. Therefore I am skilled in correcting and restructuring copious amounts of written work, and with a Certificate in English Language teaching to Adults (Grade B) to top it off I am well equipped to handle your proofreading and editing project.

You will receive corrections or suggested corrections with a full explanation (where requested). I clearly explain any suggested corrections to you, the client.


Hello, and a warm welcome to Proofreading-Editing.co.uk. I provide a Proofreading and Editing service based in the United Kingdom.

This resource is for anyone, authors, professionals, students, whether UK based or not, looking for quality proofreading and editing in British English (or international English). I offer a bespoke service, depending on your requirements. Click on the menu to find out more!

Unlike some other services which employ hundreds of staff working with hundreds of different people per week, you will receive both personalised and professional assistance from me. Above all, my work has been highly recommended by former customers. Look here for more information about standard proofreading and editing.

About the service

I provide top class fully corrected and edited books and documents in British English with notes explaining the corrections if desired. I offer a variety of different services depending on your needs. For example, for fiction authors I can offer an in depth edit, which is somewhere between a copyedit and a developmental edit. For fiction and non-fiction authors I can offer a copyedit or a basic proofread, or a few pages of feedback on your writing. For students I can help with most aspects of your essay or other work, from a proofread to a total write or rewrite. For professionals, I can write articles, or hone articles, or write web copy or blogs. Whatever you want, do let me know. I have offered a proofreading and editing service for several years and have worked with a variety of customers, from children’s and romance authors, to self-help authors, to final year students and PhD students, as well as business owners wanting articles or web content written, tweaked and honed. For individuals I can offer help with job applications or CVs, speeches and blogs. I’ve worked in EFL teaching, and have extensive experience in working with both native British speakers and foreign nationals. This has given me a very good understanding of the kind of mistakes different groups of people can make. So for my customers where English is not your first language, don’t worry, you can trust me to have an eagle eye and get your grammar spot on.

I am well placed to help authors get their precious work ready for publication, and advise students on essay structure and flow, and can lend my expertise to hone any piece of writing to your requirements. Take a look at my testimonials to see previous customers’ feedback.
