I offer proofreading, editing, project management, indexing and fact-checking on a freelance basis. My clients have included a range of major publishing companies, including DK, Hachette and Scholastic.
This role involved working closely with authors, illustrators, proofreaders and other industry professionals, and my role focused on developing and editing the company's rapidly-expanding list. During my employment with this company, I initiated story ideas and worked with new authors and illustrators to shape their text and images into exciting books for children that incorporated foreign language learning.
As a project editor at DK, I was involved in book development, editing, writing and project management of major children's reference books. My specialist subject areas during my time at DK included nature, history, space and science. I began working at DK as part of their graduate internship programme, quickly working my way up to manage projects of my own, such as StarFinder for Beginners (which I also wrote) and DK's Children's Illustrated Encyclopedia.
At this secondary school, I was responsible for teaching English Language, English Literature and Media Studies to students aged 11 to 18.
