Liz Zachary

Liz Zachary – Editor

I am an experienced copy-editor and proofreader specialising in research and policy publications aimed at decision makers and the public.


I have been a freelance copy-editor since 2015, but have been working in roles that involve writing, editing and proofreading since 2003. As a freelance copy-editor I have edited many reports for the OECD, RAND Europe and the CAGE Research Centre at the University of Warwick.

I have edited reports on a range of subject matters, but have particular experience in the areas of education policy, health and well-being, and public governance.

I specialise in documents aimed at policy and decision makers, with the documents I edit ranging from 600-word blog posts to 250-page technical reports. Most documents I edit are written by multiple authors of different nationalities. I am therefore very experienced in ensuring that messages and styles are consistent across an entire document.

I am friendly, well-organised and have never missed a deadline. I take pride in what I do and will do my best to make sure that your written work is as good as it can be.
