SfEP ambassadors

Page owner: External relations director

How can we help your group, your business, your organisation?

Our volunteer SfEP ambassadors are based throughout the UK. An ambassador in your region is ready to visit your meeting or event to let you know about what editors and proofreaders do and the value they can add. If you would be interested in a visit, do get in touch with the SfEP’s external relations director and we will make plans.

An ambassador visit might take the form of a presentation about the editorial process, a hands-on demonstration of how a proofreader works with a text, or an informal ‘meet the editor’ chat. Our ambassadors are experienced professionals with a range of skills and expertise, so we can tailor the discussion to your own needs and interests.

Our ambassadors promote good editorial practice and share experience, as part of the SfEP’s commitment to upholding editorial excellence. An SfEP ambassador can also introduce you to the SfEP community and the many benefits enjoyed by our more than 2,000 members.

Among the people we’ve worked with are

  • writers’ groups, and libraries that support them
  • businesses that publish reports or newsletters, whether online or in print
  • students writing dissertations
  • local history groups
  • charities and government bodies that produce publicity materials
  • students on media or publishing courses

Would you like a visit from an SfEP ambassador?
