I am a skilled copyeditor, currently seeking both freelance and full-time professional work. I have a strong background of experience and relevant skills, including research, communication, teamwork and social media. As part of my current studies, I will also be taking a module in Professional Sub-Editing.
Educational Materials: I have worked with Study Smart, a company that digitizes educational resources, writing and editing copy for their website in order to make it as attractive and user-friend as possible. I also have work experience with Soundbite Learning, editing scripts for their series GCSEpod. Nadia Bentoua, CEO of Study Smart, described my written style as ‘warm, friendly and to the point.’
Journalism: based in Edinburgh, The Student is Britain’s oldest student newspaper. Throughout my studies I volunteered as a copyeditor, using InDesign to correct all kinds of stories and reconcile a variety of different voices with the style guide. I also have experience both writing, editing and researching for New Writing North’s Cuckoo Review.
Business: as well as promotional copy for educational companies, I have also researched and edited press releases for Dissington Hall Enterprise Hub, which have seen publication in the Newcastle Evening Chronicle.
