Favorite referencing style
I don't have a favorite style, but I'm the most familiar with APA.
Why I became an editor
Following 10 years working as a reporter in the regional press, I took the opportunity to join a leading national newspaper. I stayed with this publication for 23 years, the last 10 of which were as group chief sub-editor. Though I enjoy reading, I have a deep-seated aversion to typos. Careful proofreading and editing help to eliminate them.
Background and experience
I worked as a senior news reporter, feature writer and agriculture correspondent for a leading broadsheet regional newspaper. I designed and edited pages for the Irish Farmers Journal and a range of magazines. I produced a popular weekly tabloid newspaper while managing a staff of eight, successfully introduced a leading racing newspaper, and produced, designed, and edited a range of A4, full color magazines for the Agricultural Trust.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I enjoy ensuring that clients' work reads as flawlessly as possible.
