Kirsten Murray

Copy Editor, Copywriter, Developmental Editor, Editor, Writer

Your creative wordsmith. Experienced editor and writer for hire, specialising in comics and pop culture.

I'm Kirsten: editor and writer for hire, specialising in comics and entertainment. Dedicated to working hard with creators and clients to ensure their projects become the very best they can be, I have had a life-long love of pop culture. Friendly, devoted, and reliable, I can create engaging and innovative content quickly. I pay close attention to detail and ensure high-quality results are delivered on time with readers always in mind.

Having gained industry experience working in-house at Titan Comics and DC Thomson, I have a great grounding in the publishing industry and working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, and Wordpress.

Keeping my finger on the pop culture pulse, I am a copy editor for the Eisner Award nominated website, Women Write About Comics, and junior editor and writer for their sister site, Ms En Scene. I have contributed articles, interviews, reviews, and features to a number of websites, magazines, blogs, and books. Known for my love and knowledge of pop culture, I was invited to lecture and host a comics workshop at Oxford University's summer school in 2017.

I have a real passion for language and creativity. Currently based in Aberdeen, Scotland, I enjoy roller derby, horror films, and live/loud music when I'm not working on projects. You can usually find me at comic cons, in bookshops, or on social media.
