creative, calm, empathic, judicious, insightful
I am a writer, copyeditor and proofreader for the arts and creative industries in the UK and internationally.
Clients I have supported include Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts; Glitch digital citizenship charity; PomPom Publishing craft magazine; Identity creative production agency; Verigold demi-fine jewellery and artists Luke Drozd, Vilde Salhus Røed, Maia Urstad, Hilde Hauan Johnsen, Julian Burgess and Rasmus Brink Pedersen.
The projects I've delivered encompass web copy and product descriptions; proofediting translated wording; bids and proposals; book and magazine publications; transcriptions; conference-script writing, word-count reduction and sensitivity editing (for diversity, accessibility and cultural representation).
My wider experience in the creative sector comes from my time working at Arts Council England, House of Cultural Curiosity CIC, and Charleston – a cultural venue and festival in East Sussex, UK.
I am an Intermediate Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing & Proofreading. I am also a member of the ProCopywriters alliance, Sonder & Tell's Wordsmiths community and the London Writers' Salon.
As a poet and creative practitioner, I have designed and delivered writing sessions with schools and charities, and I co-run artists' books platform Micro Library Books.
