I’m an intermediate member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
This means I have over 100 hours’ experience and am fully trained in the complete proofreading suite (passing with a distinction and a merit).
I've proofread novels, magazines, autobiographies, translations, young-adult books, interviews, short stories and book covers.
With a BA Hons in English Literature from Cardiff University, you'll never find me without a book on the go.
For over 15 years I led a government communications team for a public sector organisation. This role included copywriting, editing and proofreading for the web, blogs, newsletters, corporate reports and trade articles.
I proofread many genres but specialise in outdoors literature: mountaineering, climbing, hiking, adventure. I work on travel books, blogs, websites and guides.
I’m comfortable with technical terms and equipment use. I’m familiar with a wide range of wild and remote locations such as specific mountains, routes or trails. I understand the language of travel and navigation.
So if you need someone who knows boots, belays and bivouacs then you'll be in safe hands.
Read about my voluntary role with Mountain Rescue England and Wales:
Gina has been working with us on a voluntary basis for our last two editions of our quarterly 'Mountain Rescue’ magazine. Her professional and efficient approach, and her attention to detail have certainly taken us to a new level. As a very small design and production team of one, I have always espoused high production values and, thanks to Gina’s input, I now feel extra confident that we are producing a top-class publication that can stand proudly within the outdoor sports and emergency services sector.
Judy Whiteside, Editor & Publicity Officer, Mountain Rescue Magazine
I take pride in polishing authors’ work and ensuring it is ready for publication.
I'll make your priorities mine.
Above all, you can trust my thoroughness.
