I now provide proofreading and copy-editing services through my website!

I am happy to work with all kinds of writing, from academic or nonfiction through to fiction. At the moment though, I do not take novels or novel length works.

I provide different levels of service depending on what you want, or need. The most basic level is proofreading, which involves the checking of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and the like. What is required then gradually increases until we’re looking at editing, with re-writes and referencing style checks.

Please contact me below if you are interested, with the details of the project and the deadline. I work by hour (or part there of) and I can usually give a rough estimate based off of word count.



We have been using Lost Words to do our editing and proofreading for the past 6 months. In this time they have conducted themselves with professionalism, and understand the need for quick turn-around times. As an Engineering and Manufacturing Company we require a high level of professionalism in our branding and Lost Words meet our demands with no complaints. I have no hesitation in recommending Lorna to any corporate or individual.

It was great working with Lorna. She helped me proofread and edit my seven reflections, all of which were due in just a couple of days time. Her accuracy is excellent and the amount of work completed is outstanding. I am grateful and happy with her performance, and I will definitely use her for my future assignments. I highly recommend her.
