About Nik

An avid reader for as long as I can remember, I have spent my entire life spotting tiny mistakes in other people’s writing. My fingers get itchy and it’s hard to resist the lure of the red pen...


After completing a BA (Hons) in Theology and Religious Studies with English Literature, I trained as a proofreader and copyeditor with The Publishing Training Centre in London (previously known as Book House). I worked for several publishing companies in London before completing my MA in Personnel and Development and becoming an HR manager for an overseas development charity.


I moved to Wellington, New Zealand, in 2009. I now work from home as Executive Officer for two not-for-profit member organisations, as well as homeschooling my teenage daughter and holding a number of voluntary roles for community organisations. I have also been working as a proofreader for WordFire Press since 2017.


Over the last 20 years I have gained extensive experience of working on the following types of documents:


  • Book manuscripts

  • Presentations

  • Assignments/theses

  • Newsletters

  • Resumes/CVs

  • Reports

  • Website text

  • Marketing material

  • Manuals

  • HR policies, job adverts, and job descriptions

  • …and more
