Overview


Having someone else edit something you have created with care and effort can be an overwhelming and emotional process. This is why I want to make this process comfortable and easy for you . Being a published writer myself, and an editor for the last ten years, I have the experience and compassion to understand what my writers need from me. As an author you want someone with skill and experience, knowledge and sensitivity, and an understanding of the world of publishing. With my experience of working on over 300 books in the capacity of an editor, proofreader, and designer, I can provide you with all of those things.

To me, nothing beats the thrill of working in the publishing world. Whether it be designing and editing Christa Wolf's last story August, writing English textbooks for Macmillan Education, helping set up the Seagull School of Publishing, training talented students in the craft of editing, guiding a young first-time Bulgarian author to publish her dream book, all my experiences have enriched me and made me fall in love with my work more.

Some of my most rewarding collaborations have been with authors who have gone on to self-publish their own books. I have also had the honour of working as a freelance editor with publishers like Bloomsbury, Oxford University Press, Routledge, Macmillan Learning, Seagull Books, Cambridge University Press, and The MIT Press.
Every project I have had the privilege of working on stemmed from great conversations and led me to meet incredible people. There is a story behind every text, every image. And telling it is a collaborative effort.

Please reach out to me if you want to collaborate in telling your story.


--Testimonials--

"Sohini is the best editor you can hope for. She poured her heart and soul into my project. I strongly feel she helped me maximise the potential of my manuscript, and improved my own writing skills. Sohini’s observations and suggestions about clarity of details helped make my newest novel, Keyhole Saw."

As an editor, Sohini is extremely dedicated and meticulous. She is a thorough professional and very warm at heart. She has an eye for detail and her work speaks volumes about her.
—Ritika Agarwal, author.

Sohini Ghose was the editor on a number of my translation projects between 2012 and 2015 and I always found her extremely diligent in her work, bringing a sensitive and judicious eye to a text, not to mention a cheerful disposition.

Work experience

Editor, Proofreader, and Author

Self-employed
January, 2015 – Present (almost 7 years)

Since 2015, I have been freelancing as a copy editor and proofreader for publishers like Oxford University Press, Bloomsbury, Macmillan Learning, Routledge, Roli Books, Cinnamon Teal, and for authors who chose to self-publish through Amazon, Kindle, and other self-publishing portals.
I have also authored English textbooks (English Brook) teacher’s manuals, workbooks, and digital content for Macmillan, Pearson, and K12 Learning Solutions.
For the last 2 years, I have also worked with Macmillan Learning/Hayden-McNeil as their in-house seasonal proofreader.
I have just put the finishing touches on a self-help book I have written, to be published soon by Rupa.

Faculty, Editing

The Seagull School of Publishing
December, 2012 – December, 2014 (about 2 years)

As part of the faculty at the Seagull School of Publishing, which I helped set up along with my colleagues, I taught different aspects of book editing in the editing department and worked as an evaluator in the design department. I also helped plan the syllabus, prepare financial and evaluation reports, locate and invite national and international faculty for guest lectures, and supervise the admission process in close coordination with the Norwegian Embassy, collaborators for the Seagull School of Publishing. It was indeed a pleasure and honour seeing the students graduate successfully from the School and go on to start their own publishing careers.

Editor

Seagull Books
July, 2010 – January, 2015 (over 4 years)

Some of the highlights of my time at Seagull Books has been editing, proofreading, and designing over 50 fiction, non-fiction, and academic titles including the 2012 Nobel prize-winning author, Mo Yan’s book, Pow! At Seagull, I got the chance to work with world-renowned authors and translators, and supervise production with print and production managers in India and USA. I also delved into digital publishing by creating over 40 fiction, non-fiction, and academic e-books. An unforgettable experience to treasure during my time at Seagull was representing the organisation at the 2010 Frankfurt Book Fair, and, later, designing the Rights Catalogue for the 2013 Frankfurt Book Fair.

Assistant Editor

Cambridge University Press
June, 2009 – July, 2010 (about 1 year)

Starting out in the publishing industry with Cambridge University Press, I got the chance to commission, review, edit, proofread, and aid in the production of textbooks and academic books. I also led a team of three editors, working closely with authors, illustrators, and designers to launch the Cambridge Express Primers (English Language textbooks for primary schools).

E-content Developer

Educational Multimedia Research Centre, English and Foreign Languages University
August, 2007 – April, 2009 (over 1 year)

I developed content for e-learning modules which were part of the University Grant Commission’s classroom programmes regularly telecast on the Doordarshan national network in India with a viewership of 20 million.
