Carmel Edwards - Proofreader


Profile picture of Carmel

I am a freelance proofreader with a focus on refining written content for improved precision and quality. I currently specialise in medico-legal expert witness reports but have experience editing and proofreading complex documents for planning professionals and dissertations for postgraduate students.

I am an Entry Level member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), and also hold a recognized proofreading qualification. Backed by a background spanning local government, further education, and the commercial sector, I have successfully operated my own business for sixteen years.

Guided by a disciplined work ethic, I thrive under tight deadlines, maintaining a reputation for meticulous attention to detail. I am skilled in swiftly building client relationships that foster collaboration and trust.

More about me

I was originally from Lancashire but am now happily settled in the Derbyshire Dales. My early career was as an information professional, but I have had my own project management business for many years.

I have been singing since the age of 5 and I am classically trained. I am a member of Musicke in the Ayre, a collective of musicians exploring the repertoire of the 16th and 17th century. I have written and performed in my own show: “Cissie's Songbook”, based on the music of Ivor Novello.

When not singing I can be found hiking the hills of Derbyshire or in my clogs practising Lakeland step dances.
