Helping publishers impress authors, readers, and partners


Proofreading services, by Alison Strobel, VancouverNeed a flexible, reliable, and dedicated freelance proofreader? I am an enthusiastic professional ready to help make your proofs perfect! I specialize in helping book publishers impress their authors, readers, and other partners.

I have earned an undergraduate degree in English Literature (UBC) and a Master of Publishing (SFU), so I understand writing, reading, and the publication process. I have worked with several different types of publishers and projects, and I am always excited to take on new challenges.

I am ready to adapt to your needs. I am proficient in both print and digital markup; so although I am based in Vancouver, BC, I can work with clients around the world efficiently. Beyond word-by-word proofing for typographical errors, I also check for design infelicities, typesetting issues, and consistency based on your house style and preferred dictionary. I am also able to do fact checking, collate author/editor corrections, resolve editorial queries, and test hyperlinks for relevancy.

My rates are based on number of pages and trim size. For smaller projects or different types of publications including website proofing, I am able to quote at an hourly rate. Please see the Contact Me page and give as many details about the project and your requirements as possible.
