Who We Are

We are Lee-Ann Ashcroft and Wendy Priilaid, a mother–daughter team with a combined 20+ years’ experience in publishing. We have edited and proofread over 300 academic textbooks between us on a wide range of subjects.

Spelling errors, bad syntax/grammar and inconsistency can seriously undermine your business’s image and people’s confidence in you. Make sure your written communication – big or small, personal or professional, and through whatever medium – represents you at your best. Let us help you.

We offer competitive rates and a fast turnaround.


Editing or proofreading of books/theses/dissertations/reports R30 to R80 per page
(line spacing 1.5; 12pt font; A4)

Please note that this is a guideline only. Quotes will be based on the weight of the edit/proofread and may be adjusted according to number of words per page in the case of magazine articles, brochures, flyers, menus and websites. For quoting purposes, for any document over eight pages we will require three sample pages.


Wendy and Lee-Ann are words people. They have a passion to ensure that writing is correct. They take care with the details so that the text they are working on is as error free, clear and readable as it can be. They deliver work on time and are great people to work with.

Wendy and Lee-Ann are a team that have worked for Juta for many years. You can depend on them to deliver quality work by the given deadline, they communicate well and are a pleasure to work with.

Lee-Ann’s eagle sharp eyes and sharp pointy pen have, for many years, helped polish my prose and tighten my copy. I’ve used her for both long- and short-form work. She’s efficient, pleasant to work with and always delivers. There’s nothing quite like presenting work to a magazine editor that comes back with no changes!
