Who We Are

Literary Edits was established in March 2019 as a provider of proofreading and editing services. We specialise in books, novellas, short stories, and plays, but welcome any form of written media. Our aim is to ensure that your writing reaches its best possible standard – and this means it must be free from accidental typing errors!

We began our journey as a review-based book blog, where we shared reviews of the books we had been reading. Now, we continue to offer this free review service but also offer proofreading, copyediting, and a range of other editorial and marketing services.

If you want to know more about Literary Edits and our services, why not get in touch?

Who You'll be Working With

Emily Weatherburn (Founder)

Who I Am

Hi, I’m Emily, and I founded Literary Edits in order to pursue my dream of being a freelance editor. I have always had a passion for the written word and have run my own book blog for over two years. This has given me a lot of experience as a beta reader, which involved reviewing advanced copies of fiction books. I loved reading these stories, but I felt frustrated whenever I noticed a typing error or a misuse of grammar that I was powerless to correct. Now, as a proofreader and copyeditor, I am able to point out these mistakes, helping writers to reach their writing potential. I also spent a year working as a content writer for a digital marketing company, which is why I offer social media marketing services, helping authors and other writers to get the recognition that their work deserves.

I am based in the UK and have recently graduated from the University of Exeter with a first-class BA degree in English Literature. My plan is to share my love of the written word by helping correct, improve, and promote the work of authors, students, and businesses. If you want to know more about me, you can get in touch here, or reach out to me through social media!
