Anna has been a journalist and writer for twenty years and a professional editor for the last eight years. Her reputation for quality editing is built on her belief that an editor needs an incisive but light touch. “I aim for quality and accuracy, but I always handle my writer’s work with care. I tread carefully through a text, always remembering to maintain an author’s style. Ultimately, it should be the writer’s voice that comes through, not mine.”
Jim has a master's degree in creative writing to add to his 20 years’ experience as a writer and editor. “Careful editing can help keep your readers focused on the narrative. I’ll work with you to lead your readers smoothly through your story world, and together we’ll make sure they don’t feel a bump – until you want them to.”
Jim Dempsey is a professional member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
Kevin has worked in international development as a communications specialist for over 20 years, writing technical and training materials as well as devising and managing several websites and publications. Prior to this he worked as a research scientist in genetic resources conservation. “Editing is like polishing: it gently smooths the object, removing flaws and imperfections to produce a work that captivates and enchants the reader.”
