I work on a freelance basis for both independent authors and traditional publishers. I've edited novels and self-help books for several bestselling authors, and my publisher clients include Penguin Random House and Birlinn.
SNACK is a Glasgow-based print and digital arts & culture guide.
As sub-editor, I re-write, edit and proofread copy from staff and freelancers, fact-checking for accuracy and adherence to house style.
I scan for tone, content and compatibility with the magazine’s values and ethos.
Together with the editor, I select pull-quotes, create headlines, and oversee the final structure and layout of each edition.
