About Chelsea &

Dear aspiring author,

Many writers worldwide send their manuscripts to literary agents in the hope of representation, but just as many face countless rejections and are left without the knowledge of what is going wrong. Likewise with writers who wish to self-publish, many barely manage to sell 10 books and are left with minimal positive reviews to boost their sales. 

So, in the cosy autumn of 2019, I launched Stand Corrected Editing to provide aspiring authors with professional book editing services, editorial feedback, and literary advice to best prepare them for submission or self-publication. 

Most editorial businesses and literary consultancies have a large team of editors, but at Stand Corrected Editing, it's just me providing professional book editing services to as many writers as possible.

Since childhood, I have been fascinated with stories, so once I completed my English degree at Bournemouth University, I decided to become a professional book editor in the UK and offer my own manuscript editing services.

My Qualifications:

  • BA (Hons) Degree in English (Bournemouth University)

  • Introduction to Fiction Editing by the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP)

  • Editing and Proofreading Diploma (Centre of Excellence)

My Writing

In 2019, I published Two Birds with One Stone, a short tale that centres around Greek mythology. Currently, I am in the middle of writing a high fantasy novel and an Arthurian adventure!
