About me

My name is Henry Harding. I am a freelance proofreader, based in Caversham, Reading (UK). I am an intermediate member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and have successfully completed their training and mentorship programme.

I have worked in the banking industry for most of my adult life but have also written and published three novels and two plays; so I know how it feels to be on the other side of the writer/editor divide! I have always proofread for friends and family (everything from novels to album sleeves) and found it to be enjoyable work that perfectly suited my meticulous (pedantic!) nature. In January 2015 I decided to ‘go pro’ and become a member of the SfEP.

I have a broad knowledge base and am happy to consider all types of projects, but I specialise in sport (particularly football, snooker, darts, tennis and golf); popular culture (particularly comedy, music, film and literature); history (particularly US and European) and all things financial.
