Within that time I have spent more than four years editing a weekly magazine and subbing features and page layouts for TV listings magazines. I currently work as a Deputy Editor for a group of local news magazines.
I have in depth experience designing magazine pages and editing images, as well as managing print processes.
In my current job, I run a news desk, edit all copy for eleven titles and am responsible for the website. I sub copy, write articles, edit images, do page layouts and design on occasion.
I am NCTJ trained and have more than 200 articles published online and in newspapers and magazines. I have also editeda number of online magazines and covered a variety of fashion events for various publications.
My experience as an Assistant Editor for the John Lewis Distribution magazine gave me the opportunity to develop my editing skills and ability to lay pages using Quark Xpress. My current role also includes editing images using Photoshop. I have extensive experience in using InDesign too, from laying pages to editing layouts, and putting magazines together ready for print.
In terms of IT, I am confident in using Quark Xpress, InDesign, Photoshop, Microsoft Office software such as Word and PowerPoint and both Macs and PCs. I can design pages for publications, edit images and also edit copy to a very high standard.
Having taught English in Germany, I have a good command of the language both written and verbally and would like to use these skills to attend to whatever editorial tasks are on offer.
