Wordhoard provides copyediting services with a focus on academic research, tourism, and strategy documents.
I specialise in editing research in the spheres of international relations and literary studies. Particularly sensitive topics are often referred to me because of the care I take to preserve the integrity of each piece of original research.
Some of the work produced by Wordhoard’s clients has the potential to produce significant change, and, when your articles are going to be circulated among specialist and non-specialist audiences or used by aid agencies as they make plans about future funding, it is important that your arguments are easy to grasp and memorable in addition to being carefully made.
I don’t accept commissions that relate to undergraduate work, and I only edit postgraduate work that is being prepared for assessment purposes under exceptional circumstances and with the full consent of your academic department. Generally speaking, I concentrate on editing the work of tenured and early-career academics who have Wordhoard’s editing services commissioned via their universities.
Do get in touch if I sound like a good fit for your project.
Siobhán is an exceptional professional with attention to detail and deep understanding of the importance of nuance and tone in writing. She has been instrumental in developing winning research funding applications and high quality published outputs, and can turn complex ideas into concise, well-written text without losing the essential meanings. My academic colleagues who work with Siobhán are consistently impressed with her intellectual engagement with the subject matter as well as her speed of turnaround and ability to meet tight deadlines.

All of our academic services are provided with careful attention to the ethical issues involved in helping people to produce original and authentic academic work. The aim is to help you articulate important research findings clearly and effectively.
Wordhoard also provides copywriting services for universities and tourism organisations. Projects include multi-million pound funding applications, strategy documents, and guides which seek to bridge the gap between subject specialists and more general audiences.
