About Me


My name is Joy Sephton, and I live in Johannesburg, South Africa. I also lived in the U.K. for a number of years. I work with both U.S. English and British English style conventions, depending on which your story needs, and I edit both fiction and non-fiction.

I studied English Literature, English Language, and Linguistics at Rhodes University, South Africa. I have well over twenty years of experience in creating, editing, and facilitating in-person training courses on business writing and self-editing. I have been exclusively editing since 2018.

As a writer in my own capacity, I am also a self-published author and have vicarious experience of many launches as ‘my’ authors publish the books I’ve edited. I get the concepts of deadlines and stress!


My goal is to provide professional line editing, copy editing, and proofreading services that go the extra mile and are worth more than every cent of your investment.


My passion is to help you enjoy and even learn from the editing process. Soon, you'll also find a number of resources and lots of information here.  hope they'll help and encourage you on your journey.
