Editing

Whether it’s a last-minute proofread or the overseeing of a title from initial idea to publication, I can help you at all stages of the editorial process.

Copy-editing

From correcting rogue apostrophes and tidying up grammar to rewriting, condensing and polishing longer documents, I can meet your requirements for a wide variety of texts.

Examples of my past work include editing book manuscripts for Jeremy Mills Publishing, editing and rewriting programme copy for hcmf// and revising both details and the overall tone of an open-top bus commentary script on behalf of Welcome to Yorkshire.

Sub-editing

If you need a freelance on-screen subeditor for just one day or for longer, please get in touch: I’m efficient, adaptable and quick to pick up house style. I’m based in Huddersfield but can travel to Leeds, Manchester or similar locations.

I’m currently a freelance sub for ITE Moda, working with InDesign across their range of B2B fashion titles, but also have experience with Quark or working from hard copies. I also spent two years as sole subeditor for the women’s magazine website Standard Issue, laying out and subbing pages using a WordPress-based CMS to daily deadlines.

Proofreading

I can ensure that your pages are proofread to a meticulous standard of accuracy and consistency. My recent clients include Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, whose festival brochures and programmes are packed with specialist music terms and complicated event formatting detail. I also have experience creating and proofreading book and journal indexes – well, someone has to do it.
