Client feedback

Writing and editing

Fiona completed a copy editing project with the University of Huddersfield in early 2019. Fiona’s work was of a very high standard, and she was particularly good at communicating her feedback in a way that the students we were working with could understand. I look forward to working with Fiona on future projects.
Megan Taylor, Press and Marketing Manager, University of Huddersfield, February 2019

‘I have worked with Fiona on a complex and extensive KS3 maths project, re-editioning a top-selling Singaporean series for the UK market. Fiona was incredibly reliable and consistently met the deadlines I set – even when they were particularly strict or ambitious! She followed development editing briefs accurately and perceptively and demonstrated excellent attention to detail – this made her a real pleasure to work with. She is a brilliant communicator and worked effectively with the wider project team.’
Rosie Day, Editor, Oxford University Press, 2018

‘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

‘Fiona is a superb project manager. Co-ordinating, editing and proofing copy for our volunteer newsletter, she has kept us to deadlines, helped source tricky-to-find photos and liaised with designers to ensure that each edition is a high quality publication for us to be proud of.’
Rebecca Saunder, Internal Communications Officer, South Downs National Park Authority, June 2014

‘Fiona has been involved in editing training materials and website articles as well as briefing designers. Her work is of a consistently high standard and her attention to detail is excellent. She works efficiently on her own initiative.’
Kim Roberts, Director, HENRY national charity, June 2013

‘We engaged Fiona for a large web editing and uploading project with tight deadlines. She showed initiative and a thorough grasp of what was required, worked steadily and delivered on time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fiona for similar work.’
Madeline Lasko, Client Account Manager and Project Executive, Stonewall, 2012

‘Fiona’s writing style is approachable, informative and shows her in-depth knowledge of our initiative and the target audiences. She turns work around quickly and in a professional and enthusiastic manner, building up strong working relationships with all staff and partners.’
