The new financial year seems an auspicious time to hang out my shingle in the editing arena.
Helping writers with their manuscripts is something I enjoy and have skills in, and with newspaper journalism going down the gurgler, now is a good time to diversify.
The awarding of my doctorate in creative writing (UQ, 2019) has encouraged the expansion of my freelance editing work.
This builds on a 30-year career in newspaper journalism, much as a sub-editor with skills in grammar, punctuation, spelling and clarity of expression, and a decade of providing editing and manuscript services to professional bodies, publishers and fiction writers. My own experience as a published writer further informs my practice.
