Editing

I edit of short fiction and narrative non-fiction, as well as academic texts and creative practitioner profiles.

Currently, I volunteer at Hedera Felix; an independent publisher and community interest company based in Glasgow. I help manage editorial production for Mycelia, a magazine of weird and eerie themed writing as well as visual art. hederafelix.com

Hedera Felix is a voluntary outfit that is ambitious with its international reach. As a result, I get to copy edit content by talented and diverse people from across the globe.

How I can work with you

Copyediting

I can take a document and make sure it is accurate as well as consistent. Your written voice will maintain its strength and clarity during the editing process. I can work with you on:

  • Short fiction as well as narrative non-fiction
  • Art- and literature-focused academic theses
  • Website content for non-profit companies as well as sole traders

Editorial Support

I can help you be ambitious as well as realistic with new ideas. I provide developmental editing to enhance how you articulate both style and meaning. Also, I provide mentoring sessions.

Other experience

Web content production

For ten years I worked with a-n The Artists Information Company. Undoubtedly, this created a backbone of comprehensive editorial experience.

Working in-house, I copyedited web content and developed my own writing. I was able to promote artists, and their work, by helping them to use plain English to express their ideas.

Cooperative self-publishing

From 2011 to 2015 I was co-editor of the artist-led publication series Gnommero. Using Italo Calvino’s Six Memos For The Next Millennium as a theme, I helped cooperatively self-publish experimental texts, essays and visual art. gnommero.tumblr.com

There were many opportunities to work closely with writers practising in different forms and themes. This allowed me to responsively develop good practice for editing.
