“Thank you Debra, for reviewing and editing my organisational carbon footprint report. This was completed in a very efficient manner and well within the timeline I had for completing the report. Your comments and suggestions were extremely helpful and logical and you identified several issues I had not spotted. As a consequence I was able to submit the completed report to my client, confident that there were no glaring errors or omissions.”

Ian Challenger, FutureChallengers

My editing experience

I have been a professional editor since 2014 when I began assisting councils through my Writing for Councils editing services. The flexible nature of working as a freelancer has also given me the opportunity to edit a diverse range of website content, blogs and print documents for other clients, including freelancers, marketing agencies and government departments.

My editing skills have been developed over a lifetime of reading and writing, and are supported by a BA (Hons) in English Literature (1988-1991, University of Waikato), journalism and novel writing experience, a Graduate Diploma in Creative Writing in 2008 (Whitireia Polytechnic), and completion of a Proofreading & Editing course (NZIBS) in 2011. I am an associate member of the Institute of Professional Editors.
