Our Story

Amy Reay started Ethos Editing with the aim of helping clients to get their message across clearly and memorably through well-written content. 

Amy comes from a journalism and editing background. She has over 10 years’ experience writing, editing and proofreading for clients in a number of industries, including education, academic, creative and business. Across all industries one thing has become clear to Amy in the last decade; there is no substitute for high quality, accurate copy, and that’s where Ethos Editing can help.

If you need content to engage customers, promote a product or service or raise awareness, or if you are looking for innovative learning resources to support a qualification, Ethos Editing can meet and exceed your expectations. We create content that is used in a range of formats, including elearning, ebooks, websites and hard copy.

If you have written a novel, journal article or Ph.D. dissertation and want it to be word perfect before submission, Ethos Editing can perform different levels of edit.

If you know your content is exactly how you want it, but want a professional proofreader to make sure your copy is error free, Ethos Editing can provide you with a thorough proofread.

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to visit our site

Writing has always been my passion, beginning at age 7 when I started setting myself essays (or SA, as I thought it was spelled). I have a master's degree in journalism from Boston University and I am a professional member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP).

I believe in the value of creating well-written, well-researched content that appeals to a wide audience. I enjoy meeting with clients to find out what they need and I love creating engaging content from scratch as well as copy-editing existing content until it is the best possible representation of the author's skill. Proofreading is like the cherry on the top of the cake - it is the final polish of material before it is presented to the audience. I am proud of the work we do at Ethos Editing - we take care of the details so you can focus on the big picture.
