I\'m currently working for a top book publisher and am seeking to continue using my creative, organisational and communicative skills as a freelance writer and editor (working during the evenings and at the weekend).
Motivated by high quality production values and the satisfaction that comes from nurturing projects from pitch to publication, I am a creative self-starter who enjoys success as a team member and as an individual.
I am currently studying for a proofreading qualification with The Publishing Training Centre. Computer literate to RSA IBT stage II, I am competent with both PCs and Macs, have advanced skills with Microsoft Office, and good experience with Adobe InDesign and Quark Xpress.
This is my third year as a professional writer, editor and proofreader, working across media-platforms and formats. I currently produce trade copy for AI sales sheets, book synopses, catalogues and cross-selling pamphlets, create content for print and web, according to specification and budget, liaise with designers to produce the desired layout and images for text, and adapt and rework back listed copy for new formats and titles.
This has cultivated a strong foundation and flare for copywriting and proofreading, and I have a sharp eye for detail. Furthermore, due to managerial maternity leave, I have been writing press releases and competition copy for a variety of media and improving my skills across the publishing process.
Administrative duties are also part of my daily work and I have an excellent phone manner and experience with databases.
