Favorite referencing style
I subscribe to the style guide of the Queen’s English Society. It is much more modern and flexible than most people give it credit for!.
Why I became an editor
After working several years in arts administration, I secured a position as a performing arts calendar editor for a leading website. Flash forward to the day I walked into my local library and saw a poster asking three important questions: “Do you like to read? ...drink tea? ...cats?” Upon answering a resounding “Yes!” to all three questions, I learned that a career in copy editing awaited me. And here we are!.
Background and experience
I have created and edited arts-related content (venue descriptions, artist bios, and event listings) in both employed and voluntary settings. I have also edited and proofread content for the health care industry.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I enjoy the mechanics of proofreading and copy editing (spelling, grammar, punctuation, styling, and formatting). I have a strong knowledge of the creative and performing arts, as well as of British culture, geography, and history. I am fluent in British and American (and some Australian) English, and have a basic familiarity with Welsh.
