She works as a freelance copywriter and proofreader, though she still remembers her legal library assistant days. She has written to briefs from fashion brands, publishers and charities, among other clients. Prior to going freelance, she was the funding content editor for pan-European opportunities at specialist publisher Research, where she wrote and proofread web and print copy for an academic audience.
Her clients include four23, Jellycat, Literature Across Frontiers, the Southbank Centre, Chocanory, 30 Days of Victory and award-winning publisher Myrmidon Press, among others.
