Hi, I’m Lil, the word nerd in question. I have been providing editorial services on a freelance basis since 2011, working both in-house and from home. I began building my editorial business from the ground up whilst also undertaking a full-time degree, managing my former business and juggling the responsibilities of being a single parent, so I am well-versed in the concepts of time management and dedication to the task at hand.
Prior to this I was a body piercer for more than ten years in the then longest-established tattoo studio in the fine city of Norwich—another job that requires the utmost precision.
I have a BA (Hons) degree in English with Cultural Studies (1st Class). Although I have a broad experience- and knowledge-base and am happy to edit texts that fall outside my particular specialisms (with a couple of exceptions), there are certain subjects I am particularly well-suited to editing or proofreading owing to my qualifications, experience and special interests.
