My name is Bridget Gevaux. I am a long-established English proofreader and copy-editor, having worked as a professional manuscript editor for over fifteen years. I trained and qualified at the Publishing Training Centre and I am a Professional Member of the SfEP. I also hold a BA degree in Classical Studies from the University of London.

I offer a genuine, fast and reliable service, which is why my clients continue to use my services. Clients include publishers, private book authors, businesses, government advisory bodies, charities, academic authors (professors, lecturers, post-doctoral researchers) as well as research students, including international students.

However, most of my clients are publishers and book authors. Did you know that many publishers and literary agents will not even consider looking at a manuscript unless it has been professionally proofread?

Even if you decide to self-publish your book, it is worth the small investment of having your manuscript proofread and edited.

Whether your manuscript is fiction/non-fiction/academic, my aim is to bring your work to the highest standard possible required for publication. Attention to detail is imperative, and all work is guaranteed confidential. Read about how I work.

If you require a personal, individual service, where utmost attention is paid to detail, then do contact me to discuss your requirements. Whether you are in Oxford, Cambridge, Birmingham, Hong Kong, China, Iran, India, France, Spain or Dubai, you can submit your manuscript to me in Word format by email.
