I love working with words and all of the intricacies of writing and reading, so choosing editing and the publishing industry as my career was an easy decision for me. I've been honing my editorial skills since I started university, and started to edit professionally in 2012 after completing an internship literary agency and one at a successful publisher. I enjoy working as a freelancer and my experience is invaluable when it comes to polishing projects and making them the best they can be. I've worked on just about every kind of project (fiction, non-fiction, genre fiction, young adult, short stories, graphic novels, copywriting) and there's nothing I like more than taking a piece of writing and helping it shine.
