I have worked as an editor, copy-editor and proofreader for more than a decade. Although particularly interested in history and archaeology, I have worked across a wide range of subjects for traditional publishers as well as independent authors. At present, I work primarily on academic books, articles and PhDs. I also provide indexes and can be contacted at


Yaacov Nir, author of Immigration to Palestine During the British Mandate, 1922-1948: 'Sincere appreciation is extended to Laurence Fenton who edited and proofread the book, and much improved its structure as well as its language.'

Giulia Magazzu, "Gabriele d'Annunzio" University of Chieti-Pescara, Italy: 'Thank you for your very fast and excellent work.'

Dr M. Dan Georgescu, University of Calgary, Canada: 'The proofreading process is professional, of high quality, in perfect timing, and all at an excellent price. After the first proofread manuscript, I realized immediately that I found the proofreader with whom to collaborate over a long time. Five stars without hesitation!'

Dr Besmir Fidahic, author of Linguistic Justice at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia: 'It has been a pleasure to work with Laurence on both my book and academic articles. The proofreading is high-quality and the communication with the author is very clear.'

Dr Olusola Ogunnubi, University of the Free State, South Africa and Samuel Oyewole, Federal University, Nigeria: 'We must sincerely thank you for coming to our rescue to provide an excellent editorial assistance. The proofreading we received from you was timely and thorough. We look forward to sending you more manuscripts for editorial assistance in the future.'

Dr Shun-Ping Chen, Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, Germany: 'It was a great pleasure to work with you. I am deeply impressed. Thank you again.'
