Non-fiction copyediting services and specialist academic copyediting services

Behind every good writer is a dedicated editor.

In more than 25 years as a journalist, I have edited many millions of words.

I have been a sub-editor for ABC News online and major mastheads The Sun-Herald, The Saturday Paper and Australian Geographic. I’ve worked as a copyeditor for educational publishers including McGraw Hill. As a consultant editor, I have edited websites, speeches, video scripts, journal articles, non-fiction books, memoirs, in-house magazines, legal handbooks and PhD theses.

Can you help me?

Yes! I consult to publishing houses, universities, research centres, corporates, non-profits, government and media outlets. I also work directly with academics and students. Private clients, writing a book or memoir, hire me to sharpen their storytelling. I love nothing more than rolling up my sleeves and helping an author improve the narrative flow or bring the people and places in their story to life.

My services include copywriting, copyediting, proofreading, structural editing, developmental editing, project editing and production editing.

I enjoy working with my clients to make their writing the best it can be.

  • PhD thesis editor
  • Masters thesis editing
  • Student essays
  • Journal articles
  • Research papers and publications
  • Academic book manuscripts
  • Academic book chapters
  • Funding proposals
