Can I help you?

Do you need a proofreader?

My name is Annie Deakins and I provide professional proofreading services.

You could be a publisher or student who wants writing checked. I check errors in writing, giving you a reliable and efficient turnaround.

With my background in teaching and education, I bring a specific set of professional skills for your writing needs


Educational publishers do you need a proofreader for Primary or Secondary textbooks and e-learning materials?

Publishers of children’s books do you need a proofreader for books of fiction or non-fiction for 5-11 year olds?

Students does your writing need to be tidied and more presentable?  See Clients under ‘More…’.


I provide monthly editing services for the Outlook parish magazine of Great Dunmow and Barnston (St Mary’s & St Andrew’s churches).
