Are you looking for an experienced editor who knows her stuff?
You’re a busy professional. You’re publishing a book or report, and you’d like it to be the best it can possibly be. You know good work when you see it and you like to be impressed. You think you’re ready for an editor, but the trouble is there’s hundreds of editors and proofreaders out there. What do you really need and what could you do without? How much will it all cost? How long will it take?
We might be perfect for each other if:
you value professional, high-quality work;
you want someone to make all the small decisions quickly but consult you on the important ones;
you appreciate scrupulous attention to fine detail of style;
you want someone you can trust to forensically read your text;
you don’t have time for BS, wishy-washy flattery or faint praise.
My name is Liz Hudson, and I’ve been an editor for nearly twenty years. I love what I do, and I want to work with the best. With people who are storytellers and creatives, thinkers and communicators. Who love ideas, culture, and thought. Who love to share what they know. Who make mix tapes, get people together for dinner, recommend books and movies to people they like. Who are teachers and lifelong students. Who are generous and kind – with themselves as well as others. Who are doing what they love for a living. Who love to travel, to meet new people and to connect with old friends. Who live life to the full.
You might work in the arts, as an academic, a coach, a teacher, an education professional, in social justice, literature, children’s or YA fiction, in history, storytelling, a heart-centred business, a social-policy organisation or a charity. That would make you my kind of client.
