I'm a freelance copywriter, proofreader and editor, specialising in poetry. I'm also a published poet and one of two commissioning editors at award-winning small press Sidekick Books. Clients include Faber & Faber, the Poetry Society, Literature Across Frontiers, Myrmidon Books and Periscope.
An experienced copywriter and proofreader, I've worked with a range of commercial and non-profit organisations.
These include the publishers Faber & Faber, Periscope and Myrmidon Press, charities such as the Poetry Society and Literature Across Frontiers, London-based creative agencies Razorfish and four23, and SMEs Jellycat and NOER Organics Atelier. I've written journalistic articles for Maker World magazine, translated speeches from German to English and created sharp blurbs for self-published authors.
During my time as a Funding Content Editor with university-focused publisher Research, I trained with the Publishing Training Centre on their Proofreading for Editors course, and received InDesign training through Mouse. I regularly proofed and edited web and print content for clarity, house style and accuracy.
