About Selena



With more than 30 years of editing and proofreading experience, I have worked on a wide range of non-fiction content. My specialities include clarifying English written by non-native speakers and pharmaceuticals/healthcare. While I'm particularly experienced in biomedical, academic and business publications, I'm comfortable editing English text on most subjects and have worked on everything from IT and philosophy to charity gala ball programmes. 

I'm sometimes available at short notice, and am happy to work unsociable hours (especially late nights) and over public holidays and weekends etc., all at competitive rates, including a discounted rate for students. I have professional indemnity insurance and can work in Word, Acrobat, Excel, PowerPoint and hard copy. Whether the job is small or large, a one-off or potentially ongoing, I'm always happy to discuss how I can help you best.

Our experience of working with Selena has been a completely happy one. She did a superb job of editing our publications and brochure advertising for both ASDA and Tesco events. Her proactive approach combined high levels of professionalism, politeness and attention to detail that went above and beyond her brief – can't thank her enough.

Over the years I have had some excellent dentists who have made what might otherwise be excruciatingly painful procedures remarkably painless, and I’ve had others who, how should I put this, have been less than ‘good’. Consider yourself the editorial equivalent of the former - a copy editor who has made what might otherwise be excruciatingly painful remarkably painless ;)  And you did this while being extraordinarily vigilant in not ignoring symptoms that might eventually come back with a vengeance. Many, many thanks indeed.

Selena was wonderful to work with! She responded quickly to my request to edit my manuscript. She was able to start sooner than expected. Her recommendations for changes were easy to understand and really enhanced my manuscript. Any communications I had were addressed quickly. I will definitely request Selena again for my next manuscript!
