I'm an editor who specialises in editing for businesses and organisations. Whether you are launching a new website, preparing a strategic plan or delivering a training course, I can help you produce clear, concise, error-free documents.
I offer various levels of editing, from checking for spelling and punctuation to a complete rewrite of your material.
As a former newspaper journalist I am deadline driven and can turn around work at short notice.
My clients have included The Warehouse Group, Whanganui District Council, Venture Taranaki, Northpower, West Coast Print, Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand, Mortgage Lab, Westlake Boys High School, Arahoe School, Meihana Consulting, The Jewellery Valuation Centre, and many more.
I have a BA in anthropology and politics and a postgraduate diploma in journalism, both from Massey University. I have an advanced certificate in proofreading from the Chartered Institute of Editors and Proofreaders (US), and an advanced certificate in copyediting from the Editorial Freelancers Association (US). I am currently studying towards a certificate in plain English for business at Simon Fraser University (Canada).
I am a professional member of the Institute of Professional Editors (NZ and Australia), and a member of Plain Language Association International (global).
"I made contact with Anne-Marie when I was on an extremely tight deadline. She was amazing, supportive and understanding. Anne-Marie delivered above and beyond what I had asked her to do.
Incredibly impressed! I was so blown away that I have booked her in for a year's worth of upcoming work."
