Welcome to Vital Editing

I am Dee Scholey, an experienced copy-editor and proofreader based in Wymondham, Norfolk, UK. I am a York University English graduate and I have been working as a freelance copy-editor and proofreader since 2008. I am a professional member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

It can be difficult to spot typos and grammatical errors in your own writing. To give your text that final polish, it is always better to employ a professional who can look at your work with a fresh eye, a person trained and experienced in spotting major and minor errors, who will cross-check your document for consistency.

I work mainly on academic papers for journal publication and non-fiction books on a broad range of subjects, but I have also edited educational materials for schools and colleges, promotional materials for businesses, CVs and job applications, student dissertations, grant proposals, press releases, and promotional literature for musicians.

If you are looking for an experienced, reputable, client-focused copy-editor or proofreader to bring out the best in your writing, please get in touch. I can advise as to whether you need a copy-editor or proofreader as they are two different services and focus on different aspects of your writing. I can also advise as to what level of edit your work may require.
