Judith Leask, CIEP-qualified editor

My name is Judith, and clients tell me that I edit with 'not only a sharp eye but with kindness, respect and warmth'. I love that testimonial. What more could I want?

I believe editing is much less about ‘correcting’ your writing than it is about working with you to make sure you’ve made your choices with your eyes open. It’s also about making your work consistent, getting it right for your style and audience, and making it look professional. If Penguin Random House and Pan Macmillan trust me with their books, I hope you feel that you can too.

Through Just Right Editing I provide a friendly and supportive service for copyeditingdevelopmental editingcontent writing and proofreading, specialising in fiction and narrative non-fiction. I am fully trained in copyediting by the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading, the UK’s professional body for editing.

Whatever the purpose of your text – fiction, non-fiction or business – you want to know that it communicates well, is professionally written and has a polished presentation. I understand what this means in your context, and provide friendly and affordable editing, content writing and proofreading services to suit your needs.

As an editor myself, I understand the importance of good editing, but that doesn’t make it easier to let go and entrust your manuscript to someone else – in fact, it might make it harder! But with Judith I was in safe hands. She edited my manuscript with not only a sharp eye but with kindness, respect and warmth. I loved working with her and would definitely recommend her services.
