Virginia L Williams

Writer • Proofreader • Americanization Editor

Services and Portfolio

I’ve spent my career writing, copy editing and proofreading for financial services, marketing and non-fiction publishing firms. I’m known for my ability to distill complex prose into accessible text for the targeted client.

Proofreading and Americanizing
Clients have included Hodder & Stoughton, Redwood BBDO, Anness Publishing Ltd, Key Bank, National City Bank, and others. I have experience with genres ranging from history and travel narratives to cookbooks and corporate materials, websites and digital copy.

Theses and Dissertations
I can proofread for spelling, grammar, and punctuation and suggest small changes to your document to clarify meaning. I cannot re-write, fact check, or check your references are correct. You must check with your supervisor to make sure your college or university allows you to use the services of a proofreader.

For students, I charge a discounted rate of £10/1,000 words.
