Just Words – editing

I love editing text and publications to make them flow better and to iron out any inaccuracies or inconsistencies in the copy.

My editing experience includes commissioning of copy, illustrations and photography, management of design and editorial production, editing and proofing of copy, preparation of print-ready artwork – and anything that's needed to get copy into print or online.

You can see some samples of the projects I edited while at the Guardian & Observer on my work archive page.

Please contact me for more information!

“Alexis got to work quickly, interpreting the brief as we’d hoped and asking questions when further clarification was needed.

She saw the project through to the last moment to ensure quality and consistency – we very much valued her contribution.”
