Welcome to Cura Editing

Cura Editing is a completely personalised academic editing service run by me, Helen Aitchison. I am an academic myself with a particular interest in History and the History of Art. I have worked with postdoctoral students, teaching staff and research fellows at a great number of academic institutions including: The University of Oxford; The European University Institute, Florence; The University of Warwick; The University of Copenhagen; The University of Florence; London School of Economics; the École des hautes études en sciences sociales, Paris; Tsinghua University, Beijing; Universität Hohenheim, Germany; and Universiteit Leiden, the Netherlands.

All editing work is undertaken solely by me. I believe this is preferable to entrusting your work to an editing or proofreading company who may outsource your work to various unnamed organisms in cyberspace. I work from home and am always contactable by email throughout any work or project. Naturally, all work is treated as strictly private and confidential. I will never discuss your work with anyone else unless you specifically instruct me to.  

I work primarily for University staff and research students although I also carry out a small amount of commercial work for firms and other organisations requiring a similar attention to detail as academia. I provide a comprehensive editing service for Doctoral Theses, Masters Dissertations, Book/Chapter Proposals, Book Reviews, Academic Monographs, Conference Papers, Website Content, CVs and covering letters, Grant/Funding proposals and many other personal writing projects. Personal references for my work are available upon request.

Whatever your requirement, whether you are a native English speaker or writing in English as a foreign language, I promise to return to you an improved piece of writing – persuasively written, engaging and articulate.
