Utilising the knowledge gained during my 5 years working in-house, I now provide a wide variety of editorial services on a freelance basis.
I worked on a variety of fiction and non-fiction titles in the company’s prestigious 4th Estate and William Collins imprints. I guided authors through all stages of the editorial process, and wrote their metadata and cover copy.
I worked on a range of fiction: crime, women’s fiction, literary fiction, and big brand authors such as Wilbur Smith and Bernard Cornwell.
I had the chance to assist some incredible, established editors, reading and responding to queries for them, and learning the ins and outs of the editorial process from the best in the business.
