Experience

I’ve been a writer, editor and researcher in professional roles across sectors for over two decades, and a creative writer and committed activist for even longer. I became a freelance editorial specialist in 2008.

I’ve completed training and mentoring with respected bodies such as the Publishing Training Centre and, of course, the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. I’m also TESOL qualified.

In recent years I’ve accessed wide-ranging training programmes and workshops so that I can offer maximum versatility to my clients in changing times:

I’ve developed my competence in editing fiction; using social media platforms; writing for social media; blogging; writing, producing and broadcasting for community radio; and writing for theatre.

I’ve also participated in training and events to deepen my understanding of ecopsychology, decarbonisation, and communication of climate science through the arts.

Good working relationships, as well as good work, are important to me, and I’ve worked successfully with people from diverse backgrounds who have varying levels of experience.

It’s my passion to help clients bring enlightened social and environmental solutions to wider audiences through the written word.

Additional roles

I have coordinated the SfEP Liverpool local group since 2016.

Testimonials

Sally, thanks again for the time and effort you put into our report on the local energy agenda. It has been well-received by other local enterprise partnerships and the government department which commissioned it.

This is testament to the thoroughness with which you went through the document from front to back and the significant improvements you made. Quite apart from the errors you picked up, the polish you gave to the grammar means that the final document scans much better.

Your knowledge of the subject matter from an editor’s perspective was valuable in helping us to weed out industry jargon and make a complex subject accessible to the layperson.

James Johnson, Head of Regional Programme, Local Energy North West

It was really helpful to get the summary you sent – it’s excellent – helped me see a structure that I’d not previously recognised, and then to see what else I think is needed, and where.

Donald Findlater, director of research and development, Lucy Faithfull Foundation & Stop it Now! UK and Ireland

Thank you for all of your hard work. I have looked at the formatted document and I think it looks fabulous!

Thank you so much for everything you did for me, you've been so helpful and supportive, every step of the way.

Denise S., independent author

Sally interviewed me about my work on ClimateCultures for a client’s blog and she made the process very relaxed and rewarding – from the initial approach, setting out the context for the questions she wanted to explore and starting the discussions, right through to the interview exchange and publication.

The interview was published simultaneously on the client’s site and on ClimateCultures, and Sally was happy to adjust her working hours to facilitate this.

Her attention to detail in the editing and presentation of the final piece was exemplary and never a burden. It’s a pleasure to work with someone who reaches out to understand your own work and wants to share that with others.

Mark Goldthorpe, ClimateCultures

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you again. Your great synopsis definitely attracts readers! My book has reached No. 1 and No. 5 in two categories of Free E-book Top 100 today!

Marion R., independent author

Thank you for your very high standard of work, and for all the reports you have proofread so far. They are perfect. I wish everyone was as easy to deal with as you.
