Penning and Planning – Making manuscripts marvellous!

My specialisms are (ghost) writing, editing and/or proofreading fiction and nonfiction books for independent authors

My English degree, post graduate English teaching qualification, more than a decade teaching English and English literature, and marking English Literature exam scripts for an exam board for 5 years, has allowed me to indulge my passion for words and sharpen my skills in editing and proofreading.

Since starting my writing, editing and proofreading business – Penning and Planning – in 2018, I have completed both the Society for Editors and Proofreaders’ (SfEP) Proofreading and the Publishing Training Centre’s (PTC) Editing Fiction courses whilst working my way through the PTC’s Successful Editorial Freelancing course, equipping me with updated knowledge as well as industry recognised qualifications to ultimately benefit the authors (as well as the students and businesses) I work with. A big believer in always learning, I have plenty more training courses lined up for 2019 too! Personal and professional development is extremely important for me, my clients and the ongoing success of my business.
