Work experience

Freelance editor and proofreader

June, 2014 – Present (almost 4 years)

I have a focus on education and ELT publishing for several of my clients, including Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Cengage Learning, Harper Collins and Garnet Education. I also work on non-fiction, general interest titles for Taylor & Francis/Routledge, and provide regular editorial support to a Belgium-based publisher for their wide range of children’s factual books.

Production Editor

My role at this busy independent education publisher covered: resource management within the editorial team and outsourcing to freelance editorial staff when needed; managing the house style guide; maintaining production schedules and holding monthly production meetings; proofreading page proofs, electronic and marketing materials as requested and to required deadlines; carrying out final print PDF checks and sending materials to print.
