About

My name is Dave Kingdon and I live in Newton Abbot, close to the glorious scenery of Dartmoor.

I worked in Finance for 28 years and after being made redundant, in 2015, decided I needed a change. Proofreading was always something I enjoyed and had a passion for, so I retrained for that.

Since being made redundant I have done voluntary work for a charity – Shared Lives South West – performing proofreading and editing services.

I offer two levels of proofreading and editing service, copywriting and also give talks on disability terminology and issues. Please see my Services and Rates page for further details.

For strong writing remember the three P’s

Positive
Persuasive
Prose
