I have a qualification in proofreading and recently worked for a book publisher as an Editor/Proofreader and Writer, so I have the skills required. I have an excellent eye for detail as the company I worked for is a high brow business in the UK so the quality of the books we created must be of a high standard. I have just embarked on a freelance career, to utilize the skills I have gained throughout my career. I have a portfolio of my work as an Editor and Writer and a portfolio of my proofreading work available to see. I am available straight away and I am very reliable. I also have references relating to my skills, which you are welcome to see.

Experience

Editor / Writer / Proofreader

Oct 2010 - Mar 2012 (1 year)

In my time at working for Igloo Books, I wrote many books for children, for varying age groups with an intercontinental background. I have proofread a high number of books, both containing child and adult content. Book sizes ranging from 20 pages to 500 pages. Any proofreading would have to be done very quickly in most circumstances but it had to be exact as well. Igloo Books is a high brow book publisher with over 100 books being published every year. I am honoured to have been a part of it.

I'd Like to be..... (Boys)

There are 3 books in this series. I'd like to be a Fireman, Train Driver and a Pirate. These books were geared towards boys as we had bought out a girls series the year before. In these books I tried to determine what a child would fantasise about when it comes to his future. What parts of a career they would be thinking about like wearing a cool pirates hat and driving a big ship OR saving cats from trees and putting out big fires OR blowing the whistle for the train to leave and watching the ani
