SERVICES FOR PUBLISHERS
Are you looking for a meticulous professional proofreader and copy-editor with a passion for the written word and several years’ experience of working with academic and trade publishers?
I trained with the Publishing Training Centre (Basic Proofreading by Distance Learning – Distinction), have an MA in Film & Television (Distinction) from the University of Westminster, and am a Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP).
I can work electronically or on paper, blind or against copy, using the Track Changes function in Word, PDF markup, or the BSI proof correction symbols.
To date, I have proofread and/or copy-edited over 60 books spanning a wide range of subjects – from heavily referenced humanities and social science texts, to titles on film, media studies and popular culture for a more general readership, to popular fiction.
My familiarity with the broader editorial process means I understand your priorities and the challenges you face, as well as the financial impact of certain actions. I am used to following a brief, adhering to specific house styles, and also have a practical understanding of the diplomacy and sensitivity needed when liaising directly with authors.
If there’s a project you think I can help with, please email me or give me a ring on 07890 690 154.
