"I would wholeheartedly recommend Simon's work to anyone looking for a strong copy-editor of fiction. In my case, factual non-fiction. He has done a stellar job, combining a merciless eye for inconsistencies and glitches, while cross-checking the myriad of facts and references incorporated into the story-telling while honing and polishing. For me, Simon has proved to be that hard-to-find, invaluable editorial resource. Thank God I stumbled across his website and took the decision to delve further."

"As Clinical Governance Manager at the Douglas Macmillan Hospice, I have to write comprehensive reports for our regulators and for our commissioners. As it takes time to write these reports, the author can become too close to the report and miss errors. To have a proofreader to go through the final draft is absolutely invaluable.


Simon has just started working with me as a volunteer. I was unsure about how we would be able to make this work. However, I am very pleased to say that I have been delighted by the excellent service and have already asked Simon if he will proofread my next report." 


Clinical Governance Manager, Douglas Macmillan Hospice

"I have used Simon and his business in two separate capacities for my proofreading. Firstly, through my Consultancy business for its marketing material. The work was carried out efficiently and Simon clearly communicated with me at all times throughout the project. I was extremely pleased with the final result, especially as I pride myself on being a stickler personally with punctuation and grammar!


The second project I asked Simon to look at was for a charity based in Derby – Friends of the Baby Unit. We have just set up a new website and required his expertise and guidance with wording,

proofreading and capitalisation. Again, his work was extremely professional and efficient and recommendations were gratefully received and acted upon.


I would not hesitate to recommend SPs and Qs for any proofreading requirements."


SR, Director, Repton Consultancy Ltd

July 2014

"I have used SPs and Qs Proofreading service for our charity’s marketing materials. Simon proofread the latest issue of our magazine. He could spot those little mistakes and incongruities that are normally overlooked but can make all the difference between an excellent and an average publication. The service was quick and punctual. Simon is also very polite, making it a pleasure to work with him. I would definitely recommend SPs and Qs."
