Favorite referencing style

Chicago. Footnoting in general allows the text to breathe and flow much better, in my opinion, and Chicago is simply a logical referencing style.

Why I became an editor

As a practising academic, I correct and grade essays all the time. Doing this, I discovered my passion for improving people's writing and helping them write confidently.

I also love to read across a broad range of disciplines, topics and genres. I started proofreading by helping out academic colleagues and friends with their publications, funding proposals and dissertations, and soon realised that I wanted to do that professionally.

Background and experience

After I completed my PhD in 2017, I started working for a major book publisher in an editorial role. I also began teaching in different settings: English to young migrants, history at university and international relations to foreign students hoping to enter higher education.

Over the last few years, I have also taken on some editing for academic colleagues and international students. More recently, I have been editing blog posts for a startup company, focusing on language, structure and SEO.

Why I love proofreading and editing

Sometimes, editing is like problem solving, reworking text in dialogue with a writer to make it fit requirements and discovering the clearest and most concise language for complex writing. At other times, proofreading can feel like search operation, scouring a document for small errors and ambiguous phrasing. I find this variation really enjoyable.

I also love to read across different subjects, in my own expertise in history but also more broadly in the humanities and social sciences.

Editing tips:

The first rule of editing is to preserve the author's voice. At the same time, the audience is key, and editing must take into account how a text will be received. The trick is to manag‌e both.
