I am a respected editor and subeditor with over 30 years’ experience in book and magazine publishing, mainly in the fields of art, architecture and film. I work in Word, InDesign and Quark Xpress.
I have also undertaken copywriting projects for architects, educational providers and others.
Here are a couple of sample projects:
