I run Liz Jones Editorial Solutions from my home in Wells,
Somerset. I am always happy to travel for meetings with clients
and may be able to work in-house by prior arrangement. I work on
a Mac and run Word and InDesign.
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.
I am an Advanced Member of the SfEP, the Society
for Editors and Proofreaders, and an SfEP-Accredited Proofreader.
I have an excellent knowledge of publishing
software 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: HarperCollins, Phaidon, Penguin, Pearson, Michelin,
City & Guilds, Laurence King, Quarto Group
(Quarto, Quintet, Marshall Editions, Quantum), RIBA Publishing, Constable & Robinson, Cambridge
Publishing Management, John Blake 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.
