Writing and editing

‘I’ve now worked with Fiona on a number of extremely complex projects. Fiona is extremely organised, efficient and knowledgeable, and always establishes a great rapport with authors. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Fiona for development editing and copyediting, and I look forward to working with her on many more projects.’

Caroline Walton, UK Education, Cambridge University Press, April 2016
