I have extensive freelance and in-house editorial experience, working as a project manager, editor and proofreader in educational publishing for UK and international markets. From proofreading short documents to project managing multi-component, highly illustrated course materials, I work with publishers and educational organisations on print and digital projects of all shapes and sizes across the primary, secondary, HE and consumer education sectors.
I also work with non-publishers, helping to polish the written message in school prospectuses, conference reports and bid documents, for example.
