2 Skills
Freelance proofreader, copy-editor and indexer. I have a PhD in English Literature (University of Sussex, 2013), which was passed with no corrections. I’ve worked in graphic design and marketing, website editing and various administrative posts. I’ve also got a wide range of editorial experience, having worked as both editor and editorial assistant on a number of editions of early modern texts, as well as editing a volume on News in Early Modern Europe for Brill (2014). All these posts and projects involved copy-editing and careful proofreading, as did the work on my doctoral thesis, and I have also produced freelance copy-editing work for the Modern Humanities Research Association, Universal Study, and others. I recently produced the index for The Intellectual Culture of the English Country House, 1500-1700 (Manchester University Press). In 2015 I decided to take up copy-editing and proofreading full-time.
