I'm Jeffrey Prest, freelance copywriter and proofreader.

Based in Wisbech, in the Fenland region of Cambridgeshire, I've been writing, copy editing and proofreading in the magazine industry for 20 years. I'm also an advertising copywriter.

Now I'm putting those skills to work providing professional copywriting, proofreading and editing services for businesses advertising in print or online.

Those long working hours aren't getting any shorter if you're the one who must find the words to promote your business. Some entrepreneurs love the advertising aspect, but others struggle with 'talking themselves up' or else are too close to their product or service to see it from a customer's viewpoint.

That's where I come in. A fresh pair of eyes and no pre-conceptions. Either I tidy up what you've already written or you tell me what you want to say and I come up with the most effective way to say it. Either way, your chances of clocking off in daylight have improved considerably.

And if you're wondering what some arty-farty journalist brings to the table of hard-nosed commerce (and in your shoes, I would be) ponder this. Before words were my business, I was a lawyer for 12 years, in private practice and the banking sector. Deadlines, demanding clients and 'we want it yesterday' - I faint at none of those things.

So if you've ever stared at a blank page two hours after everyone else went home and thought, "I wish I knew someone who's good with words" - relax. You do now.

Email me or call 0791 869 1450 for a no-obligation chat about how I can help you show off your business at its best.

North American visitors please note that I proofread both US- and UK-English, having written for publications on both sides of the Pond.

"So how much will this cost me, then...?"
About Me

 Jeff was a fantastic help to the project that I had at hand. He was flexible, patient and adaptable to my ever-changing needs and requests. He went above and beyond what was asked and I couldn't have asked for more. I would definitely recommend him to other users on the platform and would have no hesitation in knowing that he would do a great job for yourselves too.

I thought you'd ask. Especially now that you know you're dealing with an ex-lawyer.

Well, you can relax. Swapping an executive suite for a draughty writer's garret was a career move that was either "liberating" or "insane" depending on whether you talk to me or my wife. From your point of view, however, it makes me highly cost-effective.

  • My proofreading services come at £20 per hour, in which time I proofread 1,400 words on average. So if you know roughly how many words your document contains, you know in advance how much it will cost.
  • If you're after my copywriting service, on the other hand -- i.e. you've got the ideas but want to me to provide the words -- then here's how we play it: you and I chat so that I can get a handle on your business and how you'd like to promote it, then I weigh up what's needed and give you a quote.
  • If you accept it, that price stays the same even if I have to write two more versions before you're satisfied. If I can't make you happy in three attempts, then I walk away a broken man and you don't pay me a penny. 

After 25 years of writing for a living, I'm prepared to back my abilities. Any risks in all this are taken by me, not you.

Just don't tell my wife.
