Victoria Broom - Editor

Halifax, West Yorkshire

I have copyedited a variety of books, journals and online products across a range of subject areas, from European law to film and TV.

Overview

I have a wealth of experience in the publishing sector, starting out as an in-house journalist and editor for Dow Jones, Teletext and Sweet & Maxwell, before moving into freelancing seven years ago. During this time I have copyedited and proofread a number of titles, covering a vast range of subject areas and publishing genres, from traditional books to online Encyclopaedias. I am used to working closely with a number of publishing professionals, including authors, in-house editors and typesetters and pride myself on my attention to detail, ability to problem-solve and ultimately provide a high-quality editing service in a timely manner.
