Original Blogging Services & Proofing Blogs
Send us your working title and a couple of reference links, and we’ll do the rest! If you have a blog already, let us give it a final review to make sure it’s shipshape and ready to post!
Marketing & Promotional Literature
Seminar brochures, lead magnets, email templates, Facebook posts, flyers – you name it, we can write them as well as proofread them!
CVs, Cover Letters, Proposals, Mailshots
With a focussed and unbiased approach, Red Pencil Edits will produce a credible, well written and balanced document, whether it’s a CV and covering letter, a sales proposal or a mailshot.
How We Work
We always ask for the document itself, a sample of text or a website link to complete an initial assessment of the size and complexity of the project. We will provide feedback and a quote, based on this assessment.
We agree your style template and a writing/proofreading review cycle with deadlines to complete your project on time and within budget.
With flexible working hours, Red Pencil Edits is able to offer an efficient turnaround time. We provide a mixture of regular scheduled works as well as one-off projects; we are also happy to accept last minute assignments.
Boss lady – Red Pencil Edits
With over 20 years’ experience of business administration, project management, business development and business management in the IT, property development and tourism industries, writing, editing and proofreading is second nature to Charlotte.
She has significant experience with all sorts of documentation, including multi-million international sales proposals and contracts, company procedure and process documents, training materials, email templates, social media and web content, lead magnets, social media posts, CVs, blogs, travel articles, management responses on Trip Advisor and an autobiographical travel book.
Charlotte’s attention to detail is second-to-none, and her common sense approach to each project means that she delivers on time and within budget.
“I’d like to say a huge thank you to Red Pencil Edits for all of the help and advice they provided me with when putting my website together! Both the speed at which the work was completed, and the attention to detail were exceptional. I thoroughly recommend their services.”

“Charlotte was a real pleasure to work with. Not only did she have an eagle-eye in spotting spelling and grammar mistakes, but I was able to ask her opinion on a few concerns that I had about my book. She was helpful in her advice and motivating to work with as a first-time author.
She consistently met deadlines and sent me each chapter in an organised and ‘easy to work with’ manner, with clear edits and suggestions highlighted. I would recommend her to any fellow author!”

“Red Pencil Edits fully proofread our website, which is quite the task as we offer MANY services! She was thorough, precise and the turnaround was much quicker than expected which was a lovely surprise. We would definitely use them again when the need arises, so much so that we are already promoting RPE to our clients!”

Charlotte has worked on several projects for me, including reviewing my whole website and proofing my weekly blogs. I now run everything through Charlotte and she’s become my trusted right-hand woman for all things copy-related!
Thank you for everything Charlotte!”

“Folium Consulting LLP prides itself on attention to detail. As such, the correct use of language on our marketing materials is the cause of much debate amongst employees. Turning to a professional proofreader allows us to focus on our daily tasks! Red Pencil Edits provided a swift turnaround and a thorough service. Not only side-by-side, before/after alterations, but also questions to me to make sure that the whole page structure made sense. Very happy with the service provided by Charlotte, and will definitely turn to her again when the need arises.”

“Charlotte displays a strong dedication and commitment to excellence. She regularly asked for feedback and used it to improve her performance. She consistently and carefully monitored her work to ensure its quality. The work Charlotte produced was meticulous, and was accurate and complete.”

“Charlotte is nothing short of brilliant! She responds super quick to all of the briefs that I’ve sent though and is able to give me a quick synopsis of the work that is required to polish it all up within 24 hours (and usually sooner).
Once started on my project, all communication was very friendly as well as being professional, quick and concise. Her editing skills are second to none, and with her outstanding knowledge of grammar, punctuation and syntax I know that my business copy is in extremely good hands.”

“After using Red Pencil Edits before for my website there was no question she would be my first choice to assist in the update of my CV. The last time I did a CV was 20 years previous and I was aware that time changes and so had no real idea how to start with setting it out.
Red Pencil Edits provided a very quick service and came back asking all the right questions to produce a very well laid out, clear CV. So happy with the service from Red Pencil Edits, and then continued to ask for a cover letter head for the CV. These documents I had in my hand made me feel confident with the application of a new job.
If you too want to start your application for a new job, I would highly recommend Charlotte and Red Pencil Edits.”
