Professional editing and proofreading
Your printed and electronic communications can define your reputation. Whether you're a book author, an academic, a small business, a student, a non-government organisation, a major corporation or a government agency, errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, word usage and sentence structure can seriously undermine your credibility. I can help you present your writing in language that is clear, well expressed and consistent, while respecting and retaining your individual voice. If you're producing printed material or an electronic publication, I can add value by picking up problems before they cost you valuable time, reputation and money.
I'm an IPED-accredited editor providing professional editing and proofreading services to a wide range of clients: authors, academics, students, businesses and non-government organisations. As a professional member of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) and a specialist academic editor, I am committed to high standards.
I professionally edit all types of documents, including books (general non-fiction, scholarly, biography, memoir, some types of fiction) book chapters, academic theses, dissertations, journal articles, conference papers and proceedings, magazine articles, blogs, annual reports, website text, training manuals, policy documents, submissions, government and non-government reports, business documents and more.

Online editing and proofreading services
You may be wondering about the difference between having me edit your document and having it edited by one of the many online editing or proofreading services. Most online editing services make use of freelance editors who work remotely from various locations, often overseas. It is unlikely you will be given the opportunity to communicate with the editor working on your document; instead, you will be expected to deal with the office staff.
If you choose Wendy Monaghan Editing Services, you will communicate directly with me, your editor, by email and/or by phone, whichever you prefer. I will ensure you receive personalised service and advice.

Wendy has an excellent command of language, outstanding critical thinking skills and an innate sense of good style. Her attention to detail is remarkable. Her approach is always professional, flexible and accommodating.
I am a professional member of IPEd and an IPEd-accredited editor.
I found Wendy Monaghan to be absolutely trustworthy, a pleasure to work with, and able to handle sensitive and controversial material in a solidly professional manner.
Wendy provided indispensable editorial advice on my PhD thesis in late 2014. She identified typos, grammatical errors and inconsistencies and ensured the thesis conformed with the style and formatting required for a successful completion. Thank you, Wendy, for your thoroughness and commitment to delivering a document of the highest standards.
