Molly Price – Editor

Magazine and book editor (worked at Monocle, ELLE Decoration, Country Living, Today's Quilter) specialising in travel, design and sewing.

Overview

Hello, I'm Molly, a cheerful and encouraging developmental editor and proofreader with 10+ years of experience in crafting non-fiction illustrated titles. The former head of Monocle's book department, I have an excellent eye for design and photography, with practical experience in creating cool and creative coffee table titles that are as useful as they are beautiful. While at Monocle, I project managed and edited the brand's high-end travel series, The Monocle Handbook, as well as titles on design, photography and business.


I cut my editorial teeth working as a production editor in magazine publishing. I worked at Hearst's ELLE Decoration and Country Living for 18 months, as well as at Immediate Media's creative craft magazines for three years. I have the technical ability (and passion) to work on craft topics including papercraft, sewing (quilting/home furnishings and dressmaking), and knitting.

Hearst

I was a sub-editor across three of Hearst's interiors and lifestyle titles: ELLE Decoration, House Beautiful, and Country Living. As the sub-editor, I ensured all copy across the three monthly magazines was error-free while working towards three differing deadlines. My role also included crafting and scheduling social media posts.

As the Production Editor at two of Immediate Media's craft magazine titles – Cardmaking and Papercraft and Today's Quilter – I commissioned craft projects and edited copy (including for technical projects) for each monthly issue. During my time at Immediate Media, I also wrote freelance content for Today's Quilter's sister sewing magazine, Simply Sewing.
