Writing Tips


by Proofed Inc. UK

Welcome To The ProofreadMyEssay Writing Tips Blog

The key to great writing is understanding the rules of language. This will let you express your ideas as clearly as possible. But it will also mean you know how and when to break the rules creatively!

As such, we have developed this collection of writing tips. Look out for regular posts on a range of topics, including spelling, word choice, grammar, and referencing. And we want this to be a resource for everyone, from students and poets to professionals and businesses, so let us know if there is something you would like us to write about.

Why We’re Here

We provide proofreading and editing services to thousands of customers annually. And when we edit a document, we leave comments to help our customers learn from the changes we make and improve their understanding of the English language.

These comments often link to helpful articles with in-depth explanations of the issues at hand, meaning our users can learn more than they would from simply seeing a correction.

Let Us Know What You Think

We hope that you love reading and learning from our writing tips. If you have any thoughts or questions regarding any of the topics we cover, feel free to leave a comment on the post (we will try to reply as quickly as possible if it requires a response).
