Welcome to Gumhill Proofreading based in Langwarrin!
Providing professional proofreading services for Australian publishers, self-publishing authors, ESL students and small-medium sized businesses.
My name is Dianne Wadsworth and I am the owner/operator of Gumhill Proofreading (established 2013). I provide solutions to all your your publishing needs. I have a varied background, working for not-for-profit businesses, within aged care, in administration and also within the manufacturing industry.
As a freelance proofreader I offer the flexibility to proofread in both onscreen or hard copy format and am familiar with well-known style guides and referencing styles. I can offer a fast turnaround if required and both nonfiction and fiction are my specialities. Deadlines are my focus and I always deliver on time and within budget. I am an Associate Member of the Australian Publishers Association. I'm also a Full Member of both Editors Victoria and IPEd (Institute of Professional Editors Ltd) - see: http://iped-editors.org/and http://www.editorsvictoria.org/publications/freelance-register for details. Testimonials are available on this website and details of prior experience can be provided upon request.
I take away the confusion of what is involved in the final parts of your publishing journey. I offer a friendly and flexible service, helping you work one-to-one rather than a faceless agency. I have previous experience working with other self-publishing Authors and offer a commitment that all proofreading will be carried out by me and only me. I will not "take over" your much-loved manuscript but will respect your authorial voice and strive to ensure your end product is the best it can be. Your authorial voice will be respected at all times.
Small-medium sized businesses
Are your staff unable to keep up with your deadlines for your printed materials or your website copy? I provide solutions for your business needs with a fast turnaround, fitting in with your business schedules. I can proofread your documents for you, so that your organisation's literature is as professional and polished as you intend it to be. I have professional training that goes beyond "just having a good eye for errors". Employing a freelance proofreader will assist you to save you business time, staff man-hours and budget costs.
