Hi, I'm Meg. I'm a freelance editor and writer living in south-east Melbourne, out near the Dandenong Ranges.

I have experience in editing and proofreading for manuscripts (both fiction and non-fiction), as well as writing for a range of publications.

I also enjoy terrible jokes and terrible puns.
