"This is fantastic, thanks so much. Nothing like a page full of red to rev me up for a morning of edits."
"The feedback is exactly what I needed."
"This is the most paramount advice I ever got. I have a clear mind of what should be a priority."


Massive congratulations to writing client Sean Kingswell (@SeanDKingswell), whose story After The Flesh was accepted for publication in Vol. 5 of the Cumbrian Cthulhu  anthology.

What makes you qualified to help? 

In brief:

  • I hold an MA in Language & Communication Research.
  • I'm an editor for ImagineWe and Perdua Publishing in Rwanda. 
  • I'm a professional proofreader, having proofread national textbooks for Rwanda Education Board through International Education Partners, and I have proofread for academics and authors.
  • I'm an author with four traditionally published novels to my name. I've been featured in the UK's Writing Magazine and The Author (the publication of the UK's Society of Authors).
  • Shortlisted for the Luke Bitmead Bursary for New Writers in 2009, longlisted for the Leapfrog Press Award 2017, winner of the Swanezine and Intergeneration short story competitions, with honourable mention at the Yeovil Literary Prize for poetry.
  • I teach a regular fiction writing course in Kigali and online.
  • I hold TEFL certificates in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and Grammar Awareness.
  • I'm a member of the UK's Society of Authors.

What do you proofread and edit?

Just about anything, from fiction through to academic theses and web content. 

How do I get a quote?

Standard quotes are based per page of 12 pt, double-spaced text. In order to give an accurate quote, I need to see the entire project. Send as a Word document to: info@authormgw.co.uk

If you don't hear from me within 48 hours, drop me a tweet or a message on Facebook. 

How does it work?

If you decide to go ahead, I proofread and edit the document using MS Word's Review Function. I then return two documents to you:
  • The Edit: which shows all of the changes I've suggested
  • Clean Copy: the document with all of those suggestions accepted
This gives you greater control over the final wording of your document.

What about payment? 

If you require prices in a different currency ($/€), let me know when you submit for the quote.

I accept payment in bank transfer, Western Union, World Remit, Airtel Money and PayPal.
