About Charlotte

I’m a Shropshire-based copyeditor and content writer who works with both local and international businesses. 

I hold an International Literary Prize from Hammond House Publishing Group, two writing-related degrees, and training certificates from the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), of which I am a Professional Member. (The CIEP sets and demonstrates editorial standards in the UK, and I uphold its standards in all of my editing projects.) 

When I’m not writing and editing marketing collateral, I’m editing fiction over at my other small business: The Editing Lounge

I’m also one of the fiction editors at Ambit, a literary and arts magazine, where I review the magazine’s short story submissions.

Notes from my clients

Charlotte really does go above and beyond. She is proficient in language choice, style, and grammar. She always provides a top-class service and I wouldn’t use anyone else for any written task.
Bruce Gutteridge / Hospital Direct
Charlotte is gentle, inquisitive, and a great listener. She researches your market to fully understand your needs. She also adds value to the overall content creation process, providing ideas and knowledge outside her remit to further your business' online presence.
Helen Goodall / Helen Goodall Nutrition
Charlotte is an absolute pleasure to work with. She proved the perfect fit from the get-go. Her communication is clear and consistent, and she ensures all of our content is not only enjoyable to read but also fully optimised. Charlotte’s writing is exactly what we were looking for.
Kristina Konstantinova / Konstant & New
In a sea of writers I interviewed for a blogging position, Charlotte stood out as the one who cared most about writing to reflect my voice. Except she went beyond that. She optimised the content and made dry and boring topics interesting and relatable. She’s given me my time back so that I can do my actual job more effectively.
Marianne Knezovic / Storey Collective
We required a number of scripts to be copyedited within a quite tight timeframe. Charlotte provided us with a great, professional service that was on time and priced at a very reasonable rate. Charlotte was very prompt in replying to our queries and we highly recommend using her services.
Daniel Stevenson / ETD Training
Charlotte is a delight to work with, extremely organised and efficient. Charlotte has helped me with web copy, articles, and press releases to name a few. Charlotte’s proofreading and editing are impeccable, and she has a keen eye for structural, grammatical, and spelling errors. I would recommend Charlotte to anyone needing help with their copy requirements, and I look forward to us working together for a long time.
