Margie Riley has a qualification in editing and proofreading.  However she is more than a proofreader, she is a wordsmith.  If you want to produce a professional manuscript or document that flows, conveys your meaning precisely, is accurate and grammatically correct then Margie is probably the person for you.

Her proficiency with the English language makes Margie invaluable for the final reading of important documents, major assignments, papers, submissions and speeches.  Margie has a thorough grounding in English and she recognises that even though English is an evolving language and some of the more rigid rules of grammar have been relaxed, faulty spelling and punctuation, jumbled sentence construction and incorrect choice of words will never be in style.

Experience in the recruitment industry added another layer to Margie’s already substantive editing skills.  Her work involved advising candidates on the writing of their résumés and application letters, and proofreading submissions and tenders.  During her recent tenure with a well-known children’s not-for-profit organisation Margie was actively involved in producing easy-to-read, informative and eye-catching newsletters, as well as again assisting with the proofreading of submissions, tenders and a complex re-working of methodology.

As an avid reader and founder-member of a book club of long standing – 26 years no less! – Margie has an appreciation of many genres.  She has found that membership of the book club has broadened her awareness of different writing styles and content enabling her to provide support for a range of writers seeking varied results.
