About me

I'm an editor and writer with 16 years' experience in creating and commissioning print and digital content, leading teams, and developing brands. I am currently editing Project Calm, a quarterly title about mindfulness through making. Before that, I edited indie title, Oh Comely during a relaunch period, where I worked with a small team to concept, commission and deliver six magazines across the year. I spent three years editing craft magazine, Mollie Makes, for which I still guest-edit specials, write home tours and conduct interviews. It was also my pleasure to put together a bespoke publishing package for Lisa Comfort, a quarterly lifestyle magazine from Sew Over It's founder.

 

Editing a magazine now encompasses so much more than bringing the print product together, so I've got lots of experience with social media, presenting, public speaking and event planning, too.

 

Before editing, I spent seven years as a sub editor and production editor for history and food titles. I've also consulted on a number of books and provide copywriting services for companies such as Etsy and Prezola.
