My name is Lucy Mahoney and I am passionate about producing high-quality and lucid content. I have the editorial experience needed to tailor content to meet your requirements, whether you are creating a book (printed or an e-book), digital product, journal or magazine article, website, newsletter or leaflet.

Having worked as an editor for more than 8 years, with a particular specialism in educational publishing, I have a huge amount of experience developing, copy-editing and proofreading written content.

I have extensive experience of briefing and selecting artworks and photos. I have written, edited and tested a variety of interactive content and I am also experienced at briefing page and layout designs.

Editorial project management is a strength of mine. I have led teams of in-house editors, managed authors and freelancers, and collaborated with other departments to produce high-quality print and digital products on time and within budget. I understand the need to balance editorial rigour and quality with the available budget and project deadline.

From my base in King's Sutton near Banbury, Oxfordshire, I am available to attend briefings or training in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Gloucestershire. I will also consider travelling further on a project by project basis. I may be available to work in-house and would be happy to discuss this with you.
