I have recently completed the Publishing Training Centre’s ‘Basic Proofreading’ course and am proficient on a wide range of computer packages, have an excellent eye for detail, and take pride in working to extremely high accuracy at all times. I am able to work quickly and accurately under pressure and possess exceptional organisational skills.
I have worked for a range of publishers including ProQuest, Pegasus, the History Press and Facet Publishing, and work on both hard copy manuscripts and electronic (using MS Word Track changes and Adobe PDF).
