Lisa GLASS – Editor

With 10 years' experience in academic publishing, I specialise in translating complex information into engaging text that is a joy to read.


I’m an editor and writer with 10 years’ experience in academic publishing. I have worked with some of the biggest and most well-respected academic publishers in the UK and worldwide including Cambridge University Press, Palgrave Macmillan, Springer, Royal Society of Chemistry Publishing and Taylor & Francis. I have a passion for high-quality writing, and my strength lies in my ability to translate complex information into readable, lucid content with real flair, underpinned by a passion for plain English. I take an adaptable, flexible approach to meeting clients' and projects' needs and can turn around complex assignments to meet tight deadlines. I enjoy working with talented people and helping to communicate their ideas in the most effective way. I am happy to answer any questions or provide references or further examples of my work so please do get in touch!
