Why choose Markham Correct?
A full-time professional for over five years now, I copy-edit and proofread for UK, US, and South African publishers, as well as independent authors from all corners of the globe. I specialise in speculative fiction, but am comfortable and experienced within a wide range of genres.
I hold an honours degree in English language and literature from the University of Reading, and a postgraduate teaching certification at senior level from Oxford Brookes University. Outside of the day job, I’m a published author with HQ Digital and have a solid understanding of the end-to-end publication process from both sides of the desk.
I offer an experienced, no-nonsense approach with reasonable rates and swift turnaround times, and have a stable and extensive client base who are always happy to provide references if required.
A free, no obligation quote for your MS
Whether you’re looking for a proofreader or a copy-editor, I offer a free sample edit of up to 2,000 words. Providing the full word count of the MS is included, I will attach a fixed quote upon return. Prices for editing will vary depending upon the level of intervention required; for this reason, I don’t offer a flat rate, and will instead gauge the level from your sample and quote accordingly. This ensures you get a fair, tailored price for your individual needs, and know exactly what the cost of your completed MS will be from the outset. It also allows you to get a feel for my style before moving forward. A final read of your MS after you’ve made any suggested changes is included as standard, and all quotes are valid for six months.
