Who am I?

I’m Anna Gow and I have been proofreading copy and artwork in various capacities for 25 years. An excellent eye for detail and layout means that I pick up those inconsistencies that may otherwise be left unchanged. Engaging with projects as if they were my own, I always strive to get your work as close to 100% perfect as possible.

An early role in financial marketing gave me a grounding in proofing both copy documents and typeset artwork to a high standard. This means that I am able to take on projects in a variety of formats including Word or Adobe pdf files and final print proofs. It also gave me experience in proofing and fully checking a new website for the Corporate market.

After several years running a local charity eBay shop I decided to go back to proofreading in a freelance capacity. I am now splitting my time between proofreading and training for an AMUSF Diploma in Upholstery.

Since going freelance I have worked on a number of walking books in the Cornish Walks series by Liz Hurley. I was also involved in some sections of a recent book on the sword in Anglo-Saxon England. I also provide my proofreading services, in a voluntary capacity, to the charity that I used to work for.
