Favorite referencing style
I don’t have a favorite referencing style.
Why I became an editor
In 2016, I found myself unemployed and began volunteering as an editor for a theater website to keep busy. I took to it instantly, as I had always been good at spotting errors in text, and I soon realized that it was a perfect career choice.
Background and experience
I’ve been volunteering as a proofreader for Humanists UK since December 2017. I worked for Safis Editing from January 2018–April 2020 as a proofreader of technology-related content, mainly written by ESL authors. I edited anthologies of poems and short stories written by secondary school students for First Story from March 2017–April 2019. And I edited around five 600-word reviews per month for Everything Theatre from September 2016–December 2017.
Why I love proofreading and editing
Quite simply, I love spotting errors in text.
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller is my favorite book.
In my free time, I like cooking, drawing, and watching films.
I try to make as few changes as possible.
