Professional Editor, Writer, & Consultant - No AI!

I was a university lecturer and English teacher for 10 years; I'm now a freelance writer and editor. I have a masters in English and Linguistics & have worked as a proofreader and editor for several online publications, as well as a private editor for novels, academia & corporate documents for a range of companies & individuals around the world. I possess an unrivalled knowledge of English grammar, spelling & punctuation, but also focus on style, register, tone, structure & readability. My educational background provides me with the linguistic skills, while my vast experience of editing & producing my own published written work back these up, ensuring I offer an exceptional service throughout. Whether it's academic advice, content, curricula, editing & proofreading, or assistance with your novel that you require, I can help you perfect your language & make your project really stand out. Get in touch to request samples, or for a free consultation/quote.

I hired Simon to edit my manuscript and I was very impressed with the quality of his work. He provided me with a thorough and insightful developmental edit, as well as a meticulous copy edit and proofread. He was professional, responsive, and friendly throughout the process, and delivered the edited manuscript on time and within budget. I highly recommend Simon Richarson to anyone looking for a skilled and reliable editor for their project.
