Perfect Words by Amanda George_edited.png


Have you written your dissertation? Drafted an academic paper, business article or charity report? And you need the language and formatting to be clear, clean and consistent. Accurate and uncluttered. 

Perhaps you've written a book and want someone to polish it for you? You’ve been through the developmental and line-editing stages. And you need someone to do the final copy-edit and proofread.

Maybe you've got a website but you're not happy with it? The copy needs tidying up – or fleshing out. Maybe it needs cutting right down – or reorganising. You need your reader to take notice and take action. 

You might want someone to check your social media posts, newsletters or blogs so you can publish with confidence? Or you need someone to turn your ideas into content that persuades your target audience. 

I can help – with all of these. 

Perfect Words by Amanda George is a professional proofreading, copy-editing and copywriting service. 
I specialise in academic and business projects, including dissertations, papers, articles, reports, and college and university literature. I can also work with you on your book draft, blog post, magazine, web content, social media or CV – in short, anything you have written that you want to look its very best.

I will make sure that your words are clean and punchy. If they’re in your head, and you're struggling to get them down on paper, I can help. My job is to understand what you want to say and make your words count.
