I run Liz Jones Editorial Solutions from my home in Wells,
Somerset. I am happy to travel for meetings with clients
and may be able to work in-house by prior arrangement. I work on
a Mac, in Word, Acrobat and InDesign CS6.
I worked as an in-house project manager and editor for four
different publishers over the course of a decade. Since becoming
freelance in 2008, I’ve worked on over 300 projects, at every
level from project management and writing to copy-editing and proofreading.
I am an advanced member of the SfEP, the Society
for Editors and Proofreaders, an SfEP-accredited proofreader
and a proofreading mentor. Since March 2013 I have also served on
the SfEP Council as professional development director.
I have an excellent knowledge of publishing
software and processes and initially learnt the skills of copy-editing
and proofreading through many years of commissioning and overseeing
the work of freelance contributors. I have also attended courses in
proofreading, copy-editing, editing for the web, indexing and
working with non-publishers.
Recent clients include: Agency Fish, the British Library,
City and Guilds, Constable and Robinson, Godolphin School, HarperCollins,
Laurence King, Otter Swimming Club, Parragon, Pearson, Penguin,
Phaidon, the Publishers Association, the Quarto Group,
RIBA Publishing and RotoVision.
WHEN I AM NOT WORKING...
I enjoy cooking (especially baking and making pastry), eating,
exploring my surroundings, playing the flugelhorn and spending time
with my husband and two small children.
