I’m Dave from Devon Proofreading, a proofreader and editor with a passion for words.

I’m a professional proofreader, editor, copywriter and blogger. I will ensure that your documents are perfectly proofread and edited with my efficient, affordable and accurate service. Qualified in proofreading, editing and blogging – with the College of Media and Publishing – and an entry level member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.

I offer a new venture as well. I now give talks on disability terminology – in the Newton Abbot area. See my SERVICES & RATES page for further details.

I am also a member of the following:

I am born and bred in the UK, have a passion for the English language and a fine eye for detail. I want to provide a service that is accessible to local businesses, that will provide the same quality service available to larger businesses with bigger budgets.

Why choose us

I understand that every job is different, so offer a bespoke service depending on your needs and to an agreed level of service that will make your document stand out for its accuracy. So please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I am really pleased to be offering a service to help people with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia or Dyscalculia – who are having problems with dissertations, websites or any other kind of literature.

If I think I am incapable of doing a job to your required standard, I will tell you up-front, rather than provide you with sub-standard work.

The efficient, affordable and accurate service.
