I have over 20 years' experience in digital and traditional academic, legal, professional and educational publishing. In the past I've been a production manager, publishing technologies trainer, freelance copyeditor/proofreader, and digital publishing consultant. 

I provide core editorial and production freelance/contract services like copyediting, proofreading, project management, legal research, complex XML editing and project management. 

I am an Advanced Professional member of the Society for Proofreaders and Editors. I also teach and run workshops and training sessions for publishers on both traditional editorial and digital publishing processes. 

I can help you with:

  • project management
  • development editing
  • copyediting
  • proofreading
  • crafting content to work across print and digital
  • analysing and rationalising digital/pre-press workflows
  • authoring and building specifications and guidelines
  • simplifying multi-platform output (print/EPUB/web)
  • ebook/XML/PDF/HTML/CSS QA
  • vendor analysis and supplier due diligence
  • ebook production

I have also written and taught courses on ebooks and digital production technologies to editorial and production staff for the Publishing Training Centre, Imago Training and and have provided bespoke in-house training. I also run workshops and training sessions for publishers and independent authors on ebooks and digital processes. This is some of the feedback I have recently received from delegates on my courses:

  • “Emily’s enthusiasm for her subject was infectious and has left me with lots of possible routes to contemplate”
  • “Emily really knows her stuff!” …“Excellent; I want Emily for myself”
  • “Very enthusiastic!”… “Emily was excellent … very engaging”
