Megan Hemmings - Editor

Dunblane, United Kingdom

I'm an educated, professional writer and editor from Australia, currently living in Scotland. Get in contact if you want to work together.

Overview

I’m Megan and I’m an editor and writer, currently living in Scotland.

I started editing professionally over a year ago after an unavoidable need for a career change. With only my love of books and reading spurring me on, I immediately enrolled into a post-grad editing and publishing degree. I found I picked it up quickly, quicker than I pick up most skills, which made this career change feel somewhat destined.

A year on and I’ve officially graduated from a Graduate Certificate in Editing and Publishing, alongside the completion of a variety of editing jobs. I’ve edited blog posts, short stories, business documents, anthologies and novels. I thoroughly enjoy editing all genres and styles as it keeps me on my toes, and I take great pleasure in learning about new subjects.

My philosophy in editing is, “if I was a new reader to this subject or genre, would this writing draw me in, or push me away?” I basically just want to make stories better, sentences punchier and presentation neat.

I keep my rates low because I’m still only in my second year of this business. So check out my website and get in contact if you’re interested in working together.
