Freelance Copywriter and Editor with 6 Years' Experience

* I am currently looking for projects - drop me a line if you are in need of a copywriter or editor*

When I'm not spending far too much time drinking tea, I can be found working as a copywriter and editor across digital and print.

I've worked with a variety of clients creating ads and brochures as well as web content, product descriptions, white papers and training courses across a range of industries including health, fashion and beauty, technology, travel and retail. I also work with a number of clients providing proofreading and editing services including ELT editing.

I have worked on many fiction editing projects lately, and am looking to form long-term relationships with publishing houses and independent authors requiring an editor (specialist genres are non-fiction, crime, YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I've helped independent authors and publishers with their fiction manuscripts, specialising in the crime, fantasy and Sci-fi and YA genres, as well as non-fiction authors with biographies and technical editing (IT manuals). Most recently I worked on 'Sweet Fruit, Sout Land' by Rebecca Ley, which went on to win the 'Not The Booker Prize 2018' in the UK.

Always on the lookout for new connections and new people to form working relationships with, so please get in touch at
