Need a proofreader?

Do you need professional proofreading services? My name is Annie Deakins and I am a freelance proofreader.

I have trained extensively to proofread writing. See my training details on the Meet Annie page.

For publishing confidence, education is my specialism. Adaptable and distinctive. With my long career as a teacher, I understand how teaching and learning happens. I particularly love children’s books.

I check errors and inconsistencies in spelling, punctuation, grammar, and context,  giving you a reliable, efficient and valuable  proofreading service.
