Jemma Beedie - Editor

Stirling, Scotland, United Kingdom

I like running, cycling, travel, food, cats and feminism. Cats most, obviously.

Overview

I'm a cat-loving creative, a renegade editor with a heart of gold. I love getting writing just right, tightening its up so that the true value shines through. I have three degrees in literature and have worked in journalism since the age of 16, so you know I'm qualified.
