Charlotte Macdonald – Editor

Experienced non-fiction editor, copyeditor and proofreader, specialising in complex illustrated and text led titles.


I am an experienced non-fiction editor, specialising in complex illustrated. Most recently I was Senior Editor at Ebury, working on high profile and high value projects with wonderful authors like Mary Berry and Monty Don. I am currently available for editorial work, from small problem solving jobs (last minute proofreads, emergency image sourcing, reference checking) to managing projects from initial ideas through to full project delivery.

Having worked on everything from books by Joan Collins, Alan Titchmarsh and Richard Osman, to developing IP projects with brilliant illustrators, designers and writers, I feel well placed to help guide, edit, project manage or simply proofread projects of any scale. I pride myself on being completely unflappable and practical, but also fun to work with. Please get in touch if you have something I could help with - my interests and experience are wide and I'm always keen to get stuck in!
