I am a first-rate editor with more than a decade and a half's experience. I currently edit and proof the Culture supplement of The Sunday Times, London, prior to which I wrote a weekly column for the same publication. I have also sub-edited and written for a number of other newspapers, and have written and edited copy for advertising agencies. Editing is, first and foremost, about attention to detail and correctness. However, just because a piece of work is grammatically and logically correct does not mean that it should be academically dry and, therefore, practically unreadable. Correctness should not come before readability. An edited piece of work should be to the point and lively, transmitting the essence of the message required of it. It should, as far as possible, grab the attention of the reader. This is not an easy job, but it is the job of the successful editor. My experience as a writer and weekly columnist has, of course, helped me as an editor. As a writer I have had to turn bare facts into lively, informative articles, not very different to my role as an editor, where I have had to turn often fairly mundane articles into pieces that are sometimes expected to leap off the page. I am also a hard worker, an excellent time keeper - my work is always delivered on time - and a creative editor: a humorous flourish, where appropriate, can only add to a piece of well edited, written work.
