About Lorraine

Meticulous. Organised. Vibrant

That’s not just how I complete my work. It’s why my home is neatly ordered. How I’ve only ever lost one sock. And enjoy a spring clear out (every few months…).

Wired this way

I researched phonetics during my speech and language science studies. Since 2005 I’ve proofread in-house and for myself. I’ve worked on online product copy for high-end UK brands, marketing materials for multi-national companies and academic conference publications for print. I love rules and I love to play with the rules of language.

You’re my focus

I am Lighthouse Proofreading. I personally work on your marketing copy so I know that everything you receive is of the high standard that I expect from myself. I work on a set amount of retained and one-off projects so your work receives my full attention.

Organised fun

Your project is my priority. And I have a head for efficiency and order. I’ll liaise directly with you and schedule in your materials so we both know what to expect. This is where my background running the studios of two digital marketing agencies comes in.

Settled in a seaside town

From Yorkshire to London and now Cornwall, living by the sea in Newquay is a wonderful tonic for the mind. It's the perfect place for peace and focus. With a well-connected airport and the ease of technology, I’m closer than you might think.

Here for you

Do you want to dazzle your clients with tip-top copy? Do you need someone to take the pressure off you and your team?

Let’s take your copy and reputation up a level.
