Editing

I’m confident turning my hand (or pen) to pretty much any brief. From a straightforward proofread, a light edit or more difficult rewrite.

I can mark up changes digitally or on paper using BSI symbols. I have a diploma in subediting and design from the London School of Journalism, and I also have years of experience managing big projects with lots of stakeholders, building good relationships with clients in order to create the best work.

I’ve edited scripts, novels and dissertations as well as shareholder reports, academic papers and, well, most things really. Over the years I’ve tackled copy covering a lot of different subjects from flute design, to international governmental operations via telecoms and music festivals. The only areas I tend to stay away from are medical, legal, financial or anything requiring knowledge of industry-specific regulations. Other than that I can be fairly diverse.
