I am a qualified and experienced copyeditor and proofreader with 5 years' experience, having worked both in the publishing industry and for consultancies. I enjoyed my last role as an in-house copyeditor and proofreader but have recently relocated with my family.
I have a postgraduate degree in publishing which included a module solely on proofreading, which I passed with distinction. I also completed a Chapterhouse course in Copyediting and Proofreading.
My employment history includes 1 year as a freelancer, 2 years at one the most prestigious academic publishers in the world and 2 years as an in-house copyeditor and proofreader at an economics consultancy where 90% of the day consisted of editing and proofreading reports, proposals, marketing copy, correspondence, the company website and CVs. These outputs had to stand up to intense scrutinisation by high-profile clients.
I am also trained and experienced in the subject of copyright and am an expert in permissions research, as well as market research and research methods more generally.
I am very flexible in terms of availability. I don't oversell myself and wouldn't take on any work that I didn't believe I could complete to a high standard. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.
