I’m a bookish kind of person. I studied English Literature with Creative Writing at UEA. After graduating, I worked as an editorial assistant at Pearson Education. There I learned the ins and outs of publishing before I decided to go freelance. While freelancing, I completed an MA in Creative Writing at Royal Holloway, University of London, and ran a literary magazine.
I did pretty well with my own writing. I was shortlisted for the Escalator award, had a handful of poems and short stories published in magazines, self-published a short story collection, and signed with an agent.
Later, I completed a huge comprehensive course on copy-editing from The Publishing Training Centre and joined the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. Using everything I’ve learned over the years, I’ve been helping writers ever since.
