Overview

Hi there!

My name is Tanya and I am a freelance editor/proofreader based in Sydney who also owns a bookshop. I have a BA in English Literature from Sydney University as well as a Diploma of Book Editing and Publishing from Macleay College, in which I received High Distinctions.

Editing isn't just something I know - I love it! I am one of those rare people who really enjoys the editing process. I have worked as a freelance editor for over ten years now. I have experience editing essays, websites, articles and books. The books I have edited include manuscripts from different genres; fantasy, biography, fiction, travel and romance.

Apart from my bookshop and editing experience, I am also the social media manager for a number of different companies. In this role I write and edit articles, as well as maintain a social presence online on such sites as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Thanks for reading! If you’d like any further information about the editing services I provide or my rates, please don't hesitate to contact me.
