I very much enjoy the work that I do for some of the largest publishers. I am an approved freelancer (following testing) for the OUP, the Taylor & Francis Group and Biteback. I also work for a number of project management companies.
I work both on screen and in hard copy. For proofreading jobs, I mark up in hard copy using BSI symbols or use annotation tools to mark up PDFs using proof-correction marks.
I use ReferenceChecker and PerfectIt to ensure accuracy and consistency.
I am experienced in making sound editorial decisions with reference to a variety of style guides and briefs, raising appropriate queries with authors and project managers, compiling lists of running heads and styling copy.
I specialise in academic and general non-fiction editing and am highly dependable and professional, even with fast turnaround times, which is why I receive repeat custom from publishers, project management companies, senior academics and students. My flexible and organised approach to business, alongside solid training and a real aptitude for editing, has ensured that I produce work of a consistently high quality.
I also edit and proofread fiction; please contact me if you would like to discuss this.
