I started proofreading and editing with no connections or prior experience, so I know what it’s like to be at the beginning with nothing but your dreams and a love of reading.
Twenty years later, I’ve discovered the exact steps that will take you from overwhelmed and Googling, to confident and professional. In this masterclass, I'm sharing some important lessons I’ve learned about working as a freelance proofreader and editor, and these are things you need to know if you want to do it full time or as a side hustle — from home or anywhere.
As an experienced, working editor, I love helping people learn to do what I do! If you’re curious about growing your knowledge of publishing and communications, while also gaining some serious professional skills, then I can’t wait to help you get there.
See you in class!

Hear From Our Grads Who Have Started The Editorial Business Of Their Dreams
“My days are filled with helping share other people's stories and collaborating with creatives on projects I never could have dreamed about a few months ago. My business feels like this wonderful extension of myself, and I couldn't be more happy to work my own schedule, be surrounded by words all day long, and have the real opportunity to make a difference in other people's lives.”
- Rachel Mercer, Mercer Editorial Services
“Phon is a wealth of knowledge and it shines through in HLLP. Her course gives you everything you need to confidently start your editing business, from how to work with common grammatical errors found in content to step-by-step instructions for editing on different platforms. Armed with all of that practical knowledge, I felt fully prepared to start my business.”
- Nicole Martindale, Solutions Proofreading
“It gave me the confidence to start my own business because Phon provided easy step-by-step checklists to follow. I started my business at the same time as the course and without even completing the course yet, I already have £2,300 worth of work lined up for the next six weeks!”
- Harriet James
“I have always wanted to work for myself, but didn’t think it was possible for me. Taking High-Level Proofreading Pro gave me the skills and the confidence to make my dream a reality.”
- Lakeisha Bell Cadogan
“I love being my own boss and setting my own hours. Working with authors has been such a rich experience. I get to read for a living!”
- Margaret Fierstine, Reliance Editorial Services
“Having my own editorial business has been freeing! I love taking on clients as I'm able, championing them in their projects, and being able to build a schedule that works for me.”
- Rebekah Smith, RK Smith Books
“Phon's course was just what I needed to learn the ropes and set off in a new direction. She walked me through everything step by step, so nothing was an intimidating unknown. I still reference the course occasionally, and Phon has been extremely helpful whenever I had a question.”
- Laura Kaiser, Word Haven Editorial
