About me

The editing and publication design expert
Here at Epiphany Editing and Publishing, we get excited about the small details – details such as correctly spelt words; flawless grammar and punctuation; and an impeccably formatted flyer, brochure or book.

Have you ever submitted an article online to find out (too late) that it was full of errors? Perhaps you’ve been confused about the difference between its, its’ and it’s, or felt concerned that your printed brochure looked amateurish. If you’ve ever been in that situation, then you’ll know how important it is to have a professional edit your writing or design your publication. These details can make or break your first impression on your readers, and they deserve special attention!

That’s where we come in. Epiphany Editing and Publishing is a boutique publication design and editing business located at Sandgate on Brisbane’s north side. We offer a high-quality editing and design service to ensure your printed publications are polished and completely error free. Our vision is to provide exceptional service to our clients by creating attractively presented documents that both reflect their personality and enhance their professional reputation.

At Epiphany Editing and Publishing we understand your time and budget are limited resources. By listening closely to your requirements, we’re able to produce an affordable (yet professional) result for you with a quick turnaround.

Working on my mathematics textbook publishing project has been one of the most satisfying experiences in my life.
