In 2010, while our current Editor in Chief was earning her MA in English at the University of Bristol, new international friends began regularly asking for English advice. The ideas in their essays were complex and exciting! However, because of issues with English and academic writing, their essays were earning low marks. That year, with guidance from a second-language speaker earning his MSc in Business Management, Red Pen Bristol was born. Red Pen Bristol has now reviewed over 1000 essays and 400 dissertations, among other texts, for more than 500 graduate students around the world.


Red Pen Bristol provides high quality proofreading and editing to individuals interested in improving how they present their ideas in English. As an academic service, we help students and developing professionals communicate their ideas with fluency and grace. We do not support plagiarism in any form. Rather, our goal is to support our clients as they work to express themselves ever more effectively in written English.    


Our business is absolutely straightforward. Your text will always receive both proofreading and editing services; both are necessary to produce the text quality advanced English readers will expect. Our prices are simple to calculate and do not involve additional fees for certain essential assistance. Essays are returned swiftly and always on time; we want you to have time to review your text before it needs to be submitted.

The fact that Red Pen Bristol was established by an English Composition professor speaks to the academic nature of our services. Our educational proofreading and editing combination leads to long-term improvement in English ability and writing skills while making your life easier in the short term. This is, after all, our goal: Red Pen Bristol is working to see our clients advance in every possible way.
