I have extensive writing, proofreading and editing experience from my career as a heritage professional, as a blogger and as an online business entrepreneur. I'm a native English speaker, educated to Masters degree level, with a background in English Language and Literature. Thanks for looking at my profile.
Although I'm new to selling on People Per Hour I am not new to proofreading - having spent the past 20-plus years improving a variety of written texts to the highest standard, for diverse audiences and often for print or publication.
I have written, proofread and edited: corporate reports and minutes, essays and dissertations, customer correspondence, research guides, press releases, web pages, blog posts, features articles, exhibition texts and catalogues, leaflets, presentations, product descriptions, social media and professional reports - not to mention my creative writing on the side!
Working to deadline, editing for a particular audience, and paying attention to detail and have been crucial skills throughout my career working for a University, Local Authority and Government, as well as writing for my own blog and online business.
I have produced writing for the general public, specialist groups, exhibition visitors, international audiences, the heritage sector, government departments, professional peers and blog readers. A creative at heart, I am also very familiar with business writing, having spent 5 years working as the Business Manager for a Chief Executive, responsible for a range of corporate and governance documentation, legislation compliance and professional research, among many other duties. I am very familiar with editing other people's writing (not just my own).
As the creator and owner of Life Writing, an online business that supports writers and storytellers, I also know a thing or two about different writing styles.
