Lori Heaford

Copy-Editor, Proofreader, Writer

Profile

With many years’ experience, I work successfully with academic, corporate and individual clients across diverse disciplines.

Professionally, I am a qualified copy-editor and proofreader, and a Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP).* I adhere to the CIEP's code of practice and undertake regular professional development.

Academically, I have a BA (honours) in English language and literature, and an MA (distinction) in literature. I am also working towards a second BA in politics, philosophy and economics.

I am a native English speaker based in the UK, although I have experience of working with both US and non-native English speakers.

I have proven that I can adapt to meet the needs of any author, publisher or client, in terms of both approach and availability. I provide efficient, reliable and high-quality work at reasonable rates. I am committed to producing work of the highest possible standard and will go the extra mile to achieve this.

Writing

I write general interest articles and letters on a broad range of subjects, particularly literary history/biography.

I have been published by:

  • Blue & Green Tomorrow
  • The Lady
  • Woman's Weekly
  • Bella
