“Hannah Bass was pivotal in co-editing the entire manuscript and clarifying many ‘Belgianisms’ into English”

Sofie Pelsmakers, ‘Acknowledgements’, The Environmental Design Pocketbook

I care ferociously about spelling, grammar, and good, clean copy; in another life, I’d have been a sub. So it’s not surprising that I approach my freelance copyediting and proofreading work not just with diligence but with relish.

I specialise particularly in helping non-native English writers to get their point across with fluency and clarity. My work so far has included proofreading academic papers, writing web and promotional copy for an ethical construction firm in Ghana, and copyediting several books for the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), including The Environmental Design Pocketbook and the forthcoming A Gendered Profession: The Question of Representation in Space Making.

I’m always keen to take on new projects so if your words need sprucing up, contact me on
