Copy editor / proofreader

NB: Dates I will not be available: 4-17 December, 25-30 December (as per New Zealand dates). I have a B.A. in English and taught English at secondary school for four years in Auckland, New Zealand, followed by two years teaching English as a second language. My relevant work experience includes copy editing for Elsevier Science Publishers, the International Journal of Wellbeing, the New Zealand Blind Foundation, and the Aegis Trust. I have been transcribing for 20 years, most recently with DTI Global. I have edited newsletters for several organizations. I am the secretary of an Auckland heritage and environmental group, for which I write numerous submissions, mostly to the local council, and also the secretary for a group of volunteers who provide services to homeless people. My training in technical writing focused on the editing of manuals, considering how to present information with clarity and succinctness.
