Joan Gladwyn science editor

A professional and accurate editing service

Unless words are used correctly, a reader cannot grasp what the writer is trying to communicate. Worse still, the reader notices typos or the incorrect use of language and is disappointed by the apparent lack of professionalism that such mistakes imply. Joan Gladwyn from Proper Words will work with you to produce writing that is clear, error-free and consistent, no matter the medium. You might be writing copy for a brochure, or a research proposal, or text for a website. Joan will ensure that the finished text looks and sounds professional. Mistakes can be costly and embarrassing – don't take the risk of publishing without a professional checking it first.
