My experience

As well as previous freelance editorial projects, I have worked in-house for Scripture Union Publishing and Hodder & Stoughton in editorial roles. I’m trained in BSI proofreading marks, and I am also comfortable editing digitally, for example using “track changes” in Word.

I know my commas from their semi-colons. I understand when to use an en- or em-dash. I never have to play ‘pin the apostrophe on the sentence’. I can sharpen and shape your words and thoughts, so that they ring clear and true in readers’ minds.
