About Dr Laura Key, Business Owner and Director:

I am a Doctor of English Studies, having obtained my PhD from the University of Manchester in 2012, following an MA from the same institution (2008) and a first-class BA (Hons) English and American Literature degree from Keele University (2007). I have nine years’ experience in proofreading, six years’ experience in copywriting and editing and five years’ experience of lecturing and tutoring in English and American Studies at two Russell Group universities (Manchester and Liverpool, UK). This background has provided my comprehensive expertise in all aspects of English writing, editing and teaching, meaning that you can access my business’s professional services with confidence. I accept both one-off commissions and longer term contracts – please contact me for a personalised quotation.

Let me take a fresh look at your writing – I will be able to see things objectively, offering a perspective that you, as the author, cannot have. Together we can make your work stand out from the crowd!

“I have worked with Laura for 7 years now. I find her very easy to work with and the work she produces is excellent. Deadlines are never a problem, which is so important in this fast-paced world of the internet and social media.Laura makes the job easy – with very little input from me, she can make anything sound brilliant! Her work is worth every penny to me as it allows me the time to concentrate on what I’m good at” – Julie Twist, Managing Director, Julie Twist Properties, Manchester, UK.

“I was impressed with your prompt responses and professionalism, and in many places you have really helped me understand what I could do better with my writing – a great learning process.
All in all I was very satisfied with the process, and I will certainly use your services again in the future and will recommend your name to others, if you are happy for me to do so”. – Lee, PhD Candidate, Goldsmiths, London.

“Your services were wonderful – the proofreading and editing of my Graduate Teacher Programme application helped me to secure my place on the course. Many thanks!” – James Sumpter, Teacher, Oxfordshire.
