Two suggestions:
(1) The copyediting-L list publishes a list of freelance copyeditors.
Many of them also do proofreading. If you are interested, I can email you
a copy. It's a few months old (I don't download every monthly update) but
you should be able to find a couple of people in your area.

(2) If you want to educate yourself, rather than farm out the work, there
is a book called _Handbood for Proofreading_ by Laura Killen Anderson.
It is a very thorough treatment of proofreading techniques for different
types of documents. The publisher is NTC Business Books, and the ISBN is

Good luck.
