Service Description

My interest in editing commenced over 20 years ago when I was responsible for editing a monthly dairy farming magazine for my employer. Since then I have undertaken both volunteer and freelance editing and proofreading. This interest in editing and the English language led me to study the Diploma of Professional Editing and Proofreading course with the Australian College of Journalism.

In 2011, I added indexing to my skills, attending ANZSI's Basic Book Indexing Parts 1 & 2 courses. I like to continue to upgrade my skills in both editing and indexing by undertaking further training when the opportunity arises. There is always more to learn.

As well as editing, proofreading and indexing, I am also available for writing and rewriting work, and can format your Word documents.

In addition to my editing and indexing courses, I hold a Diploma of Applied Science (Agriculture) and have also studied mathematics, accounting, and music theory and practice.
