Jane Hammett

Copy-editor and Proofreader


I am an established, experienced copy-editor and proofreader. Freelance since 1998, I have worked on hundreds of projects. See what my clients have to say about me.

I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and abide by the Society’s Code of Practice. See my entry in the SfEP online Directory of Editorial Services.

My regular clients include businesses, both large and small, self-publishing authors, and many large UK publishers, including Orion Children’s Books, Schofield & Sims, Wiley-Blackwell, Crown House Publishing, Parragon Books, Simon & Schuster and Curious Fox.

As well as working with publishers, I specialise in working on fiction and for businesses.


I am organised and self-motivated, and pride myself on being accurate, thorough and reliable, meeting deadlines and working to individual briefs. I have excellent communication skills, an eye for detail and an exceptional knowledge of English language and grammar.

In my spare time, I enjoy nature, wildlife, bird-watching and reading – I am a voracious reader and am never without a book.
