Amalie Andersen - Editor

Stirling, Great Britain

Publishing student in the final stages with a passion for editorial and a severe impatience to start my publishing career.

Overview

While studying, I have previously interned with the Danish publishing house Turbulenz for four months as well as for five weeks with Edinburgh-based children's publisher Barrington Stoke. I am very proud of having interned with these two publishers who had me proofread and copy-edit a varied range of great books. Another proud achievement of mine is to have completed the module 'Editorial Practice and Content Creation' with Distinction.. I also did quite well in modules on marketing, management, digital publishing and digital design . I also hold a bachelor's degree in English Literature and Language from the University of Copenhagen. Finally, I possess a strong work ethic and I always meet my deadlines. Other skills include exceptional writing, editing and research skills (naturally). Some of the titles listed in my portfolio, I have worked on in Danish. Unfortunately, I am unable to add the Danish editions as they are not sold on Amazon.
