Hi, I’m Kate! (she/her)
I’m based in London but I work with clients all over the world – and I edit in UK, US, and Canadian English.
I specialise in editing and proofreading:
- Dystopian fiction
- Comics and graphic novels
- Board games and TTRPGs
As an editor, my job is to support and encourage rather than criticise. I want to work with you to enhance your voice and make sure your vision is clear to the reader.
In my spare time, I’m a huge fan of horror/ fantasy / graphic novels / games / all things geek. When I’m not editing, you can find me reading, writing, watching something new on Netflix, playing on my PS5, or scheming on behalf of my D&D characters.
Memberships and Training
I’m an Intermediate Member of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), formerly the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), and a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA) in the US. I’m also a Partner Member of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).
