I have 14 years of experience as a sub-editor and production editor at national consumer, client and trade magazines, websites and newspapers. As well as excellent written English, content management software and Adobe InDesign skills, I have experience of managing a team, creating flatplans, copywriting and overseeing the production schedule to meet daily, weekly and monthly deadlines. I also offer a proofreading and copy-editing service for books (mainly travel and children's fiction) and occasionally write features or reviews.
