“You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.” — Arthur Plotnik

Red Pendragon is all about perfection. Perfection of grammar, style, prose, yes, but ultimately I’m talking about the perfection of communication. Red Pendragon takes your words and burns them in the dragon’s flames, then brushes off the ashes to reveal the jewel beneath.


I call it empowering the message. Your message.

My name is Matthew Sampson. I’m a moustached New Zealander with an eye for detail, a love of grammar, and very strong perfectionist tendencies. I love books, blogging and ballet, and I believe there should be laws regulating the public use of grammar. There aren’t. Unfortunately.

Do you have a manuscript you’re planning to publish? I’d love to help you succeed. I offer proofreading and line editing services at affordable rates. What I consider most important about my business is the gracious service, quality, and dedication to helping you succeed.

Let me clear away the smoke hiding your message so the flames of your passion can burn.

What are you waiting for? Let’s work together!
