About The Wordhouse

Wordhouse Writing Services is based in Co Longford in the heart of rural Ireland. From here, the highly professional services are delivered anywhere in the world without any face-to-face contact, saving you time and costly travel. There is no strict 9–5 routine here either – drop us any time including evenings and weekends and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

The business is headed up by Gill Pavey who offers services in proofreading, copy-editing and copywriting. Gill started proofreading in the 1980s when she was employed by a water sports magazine group in London, before moving to a provincial newspaper. Over the years she has become an accomplished copy-editor and works with a number of large organisations across Europe on translated business documents and academic papers and reports, and authors of non-fiction books. She has also worked on documents for the European Parliament and European Commission agencies.

Gill has extensive experience with academic work by non-native English speakers and has transformed documents translated from languages as diverse as Russian, Chinese and Arabic as well as a range of European languages. Send an  for a friendly, no obligation response.

Gill’s qualifications include MSc (Finance), she is a Chartered Management Accountant (ACMA/GCMA), holds a diploma in proofreading and a UK copywriting qualification.  She is a member of the Association of Freelance Editors, Proofreaders and Indexers in Ireland. She shares her life with a Dalmatian, Danny, and two bossy cats.

Wordhouse is proud to have won the Small Business Sunday award from Theo Paphitis (Dragons’ Den) in 2013.

Finally, we mustn’t forget the Wordhouse guard dog and personal assistant. The young hooligan Danny is doing a great job. Guarding me from the cats. *sigh*
