I have an Honours degree in English and many years of experience as a news and feature editor. This is what I can do for you:
Books: I have a broad general knowledge and can edit and proofread in most disciplines, but I specialise in proofreading and editing lifestyle-related manuscripts. As a former Lifestyle Editor, I can work with hybrid texts that contain elements as varied as story-telling and recipes. As a member of a quilting guild, I can also cast a keen eye over crafting books.
Magazines: I have project management skills – and a keen sense of the importance of a deadline. I can proofread pages speedily and efficiently, paying special attention to sections that need a detailed eye: recipes and crosswords come to mind. I understand the needs of the market and can ensure that your product goes to press squeaky clean.
Writing: I can research and write content for websites or articles for magazines. I can also rewrite content where needed.
