Ben starts business after finishing proofreading course


CMP proofreading and editing course graduate, Ben Sneath, has launched his own business providing editorial services.

Ben took our proofreading course to redefine his skills after several years working as a journalist.

He has experience working for clients including Nursing Standard and Travel Trade Gazette.

He said: ‘I offer clients a range of editorial services, including digital and print proofreading, copyediting and writing. I’ve been a freelancer for over 15 years and built-up a large list of clients – from media groups to start-up publications and sites.

‘I’ve been passionate about the written word all my life and I achieved a BA in English Literature at Swansea University. This passion led me into the world of journalism and publishing. I started as an editorial assistant and later established myself as a freelance copy-editor and writer.’

​Ben added: ‘I went on to complete the NCTJ News Journalism diploma to improve my writing and media law knowledge. While, to nail my grammar and editing skills, I recently passed CMP’s proofreading and editing diploma. I can now offer all these skills to my clients.’
