Professional editing and proofreading

Do you need an editor or proofreader for your book, article, or other written work about an aspect of music? Or a typesetter for your new composition? You've come to the right place.

We are an international group of independent professional editors and proofreaders united in our love of music.

We are all members of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), and abide by its Code of Practice.

FaME members work on a freelance basis, independently of each other, and each member is solely responsible for any work they are contracted for.
