development editing and copy-editing

I am experienced at developing and copy-editing different of kinds of text for different audiences. I am happy to liaise with authors to resolve queries, address reviewer comments and to make sure that the manuscript matches the writing brief and design specification.

I have many years of experience working with authors to develop and improve material. Over that time I have worked with material of various standards ensuring that authors are clear about what is being changed and approaching any major changes with sensitivity to make sure that all parties are happy with the final product.
