Hit Send, based in Hobart, Tasmania, is an editing and proofreading business run by Mel Roome and backed by a talented team of freelancers who are on call to help deliver on our fast-turnaround promise. Our editors live in Australia and New Zealand.
We specialise in checking documents for companies, small businesses, government and not-for-profit organisations. Please note we don’t edit student essays or theses. The jobs we take on range from a ten-minute proofread to major projects, so feel free to approach Mel for a chat about whatever you have in mind.
Hit Send editors favour straightforward but elegant, informative, readable English. (Mel delivers plain English workshops for the Tasmanian Government’s 26TEN literacy and numeracy campaign.)
Our clients come from a wide variety of industries, and you may like to view a sample of the published reports and magazines we’ve edited recently.
We edit in Australian English
Our reference tools for editing at Hit Send are the latest editions of the Macquarie Dictionary and Australian Government Style Manual for Authors, Editors and Printers, but we can equally use your organisation’s style guide.
We edit in British English
For our British clients, operating in different time zones means we can edit your final draft reports while you sleep; overnight editing means no time is wasted, and you receive the peace of mind of a final edit. We refer to Oxford Dictionaries, including the New Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors and Fowler’s Modern English Usage. Send us your organisation’s style guide if you like.
