Whether you are a business, a charity, a museum or any other kind of organisation, if you produce anything that will be seen or read by the public – whether that is in print or online – an editor and proofreader will not only help you with the conception and creation of the project, they will also help to save you from making any howlers. From structuring and streamlining a leaflet to checking the labels for a museum exhibit, I can help you make sure that the text is engaging and error-free. I can even help you write it!
I also offer a more creative service, conceiving and running projects for galleries and museums, working with staff and volunteers where appropriate. Projects I’ve worked on include a 'talking museum' audio guide for visually impaired visitors to the John Gray Centre museum in Haddington, and Animating John Gray, a project to introduce East Lothian’s then brand-new heritage centre to the region’s schools and families and involving drama, art, storytelling and computer skills.
More recently I was involved in the creation of an innovative and creative art catalogue for the collection of Mrs Jay and W. Gordon Smith, to accompany an extensive exhibition at the Open Eye Gallery in Edinburgh.
Do get in touch for a friendly and informal discussion about what you need, and how I can help you.
