About Me:
I am a UK writer and recent graduate with a high level of written communication skills and an eye for errors.

My highest level of education is a first class BA honours degree in English Literature with Sociology, with which I graduated in 2011.

I have experience in copy editing, having worked for Less Than Three Press on a freelance basis for the last six months. I have also done plenty of beta reading and editing for friends over the last four years.

I mainly write and proofread poetry and fiction, but I can also proofread and edit other kinds of writing. I am able to write in a variety of different styles upon request.

I also hold A levels in English Literature and Language (C); Sociology (A); Psychology (C); and have an A/S level in Law (B)

I currently have two published...
