Louise Salmon – Editor

Covering a range of subjects including entertainment, education, reference, media and the arts


Looking for input on a non-fiction project or book?

Hopefully there are many ways I can contribute to your publishing journey, whether you need a full edit or just some advice on fine-tuning your writing and structure. Or both!

My work in publishing has included editing best-selling books, reference books, magazines and websites, dealing with subject matter such as TV, education, entertainment, media, arts, cinema, photography, music, health and wellbeing, and news and events.

Most recently I edited the book series Starting University, the Amazon #1 guide to all things uni for first-year students, as well as the biography Babe and Queenie: Words of Wisdom for Future Leaders, and an educator's survival guide to lunch and recess duty, Food Fight.

I also mentor creative writers and journalists looking to find jobs in their fields and get published.

Over the years I've worked with all kinds of writers, at various stages of the editing process. So please don’t hesitate to get in touch for guidance on getting your words where you want them to go.
