Barbara Orpen Hathorn - Editor

Franschhoek, Western Cape, South Africa

I am an English language practitioner, specialising in writing and editing. I love fine-tuning texts so that meaning and message are clear.

Overview

As a language practioner, I have worked for more than 30 years in many different fields relating to English, including journalism, teaching, writing and editing. I was privileged to co-author the Oxford English Grammar - advanced guide (2015) and have also co-authored several Oxford University Press English language text books. My editing experience has involved editing academic texts for various univerisities in South Africa and for the Centre for Advanced Studies of African Society (CASAS). I have also enjoyed editing creative writing and fiction.
