I am an experienced subeditor/production editor with a robust knowledge of Quark Express.
I also am highly proficient in the use of Adobe Photoshop and Acrobat Professional.
Five years of employment as a Subeditor/Production Editor of a weekly newspaper based in London has given me a full understanding of the pre-press process for newspapers and magazines and given me the skills to undertake a wealth or projects demanding desktop publishing/design expertise (newsletters, pamphlets, advertisements).
I have impeccable copy-editing skills and a full knowledge of all proof reading symbols.
I can quickly and accurately sub-edit copy to suit specific style and content.
I have an impressive command of language and have written multiple book reviews and news filler pieces in my previous contracts.
My experience is not limited to the creative/journalistic sphere although this is what I prefer to concentrate on now. I spent two years as the Advertising Manager of a weekly newspaper and so have the appropriate skills for such a position: meticulous organisation, accuracy and admin skills, knowledge of advertising sales and production process, great telephone and personal manner. This also taught me the skill of designing/setting both classified and display adverts to individual client's specifications and those of the publisher and involved working closely with many large advertising agencies.
I will also undertake research of any subject, either online or with access to the excellent facilities available in London.
