Peter Wooton, author and photojournalist. Member of the National Union of Journalists.
Penny is a great proofreader: she pays close attention to the text, is thorough in her reading and always returns proofs to our time schedule. We are consistently impressed with her queries, suggestions and the care she takes. She has an eagle eye for details, which is essential, and we highly recommend her services. Added to this, she is a joy to work with.
