If you need someone to spot your errors, or inconsistencies and give you some quick-fixes for a text, I can be that bookworm.

I also take on larger editing projects – contributing creatively to your final vision, as necessary.

If you’d like to learn more about the difference between copyediting and proofreading – or chat about what level of service your work requires – pop me a message here or email: rebeccaritsonis@gmail.com

COPYEDITING – ‘Please Stay Here, I Want You Near’ and accompanying ‘Parenting Handbook’.

This project was really delightful. Not only did I get to edit a timely parenting handbook (I have two young children), I also got to work with this cuddly character – Bartley Bear -on his first poetry book. Written by Dr Sarah Mundy and illustrated by Rachel Millson-Hill, I was privileged to be asked to copy-edit both prose – Parenting Through Stories’ ‘Parenting Handbook’ – and poetry, ‘Please Stay Here, I Want You Near’. The books are now available to buy.

PROOFREADING – ‘The New West Country Cookbook’, David Griffen

Another project with David Griffen, this time lending support to the editorial team as a proofreader.
