Project editing and management
I have more than a decade’s experience of creating magazines, from initial concept right through contributor liaison, image selection, sub-editing, design and proofing – so I’m able to expertly manage the process from start to finish. I have also recruited, trained and managed an editorial team, commissioned freelancers, kept to tight budgets, devised marketing strategies and worked closely with an advertising department to maximize revenue.
Sub-editing and production
I have extensive experience of re-writing dull copy, coming up with snappy titles and sells, and altering text to ensure it complies with house style and word count limits. My proofreading is accomplished – thanks to a pedantic streak. I am also experienced in design direction, making sure that the finished product is ‘on brand’.
I have edited a variety of publications, including:
- Period Ideas
- The Little Book of Maintenance (in assocation with the SPAB)
- Speciality Food
- Period House
- Attire Bridal
- Craft Focus
- Bathroom magazine (contract)
- The Kitchen Alliance magazine (contract)
