I am a copy-editor and proofreader with almost 40 years’ experience, and I am a professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
I worked in-house at daily newspapers and in corporate communications before going freelance in 2012. I have tackled a wide variety of subject matter during my career – from business to sport and from politics to the arts. My work has also involved a range of media, including newspapers, magazines, brochures, websites, press releases and reports.
However, I am always looking to refresh old skills and acquire new ones. In the past few months, I have gained a distinction in the Basic Proofreading course run by the Publishing Training Centre and have taken the CIEP’s Web Editing and Editing Digital Content courses.
I have a number of interests, including international development, archaeology, genealogy and sport. I also have a keen interest in Spain, and I have been learning Spanish for several years.
I am meticulous and conscientious in my work and always hit my deadlines. I am friendly, easy to work with and sensitive to my clients’ needs. I’m happy to discuss any kind of project, so please drop me a line – I’d be delighted to hear from you.
