Founded in 2005, Typographica Manuscript offers writing, overwriting, development editing, content editing, copy-editing, production editing, proofreading and project management services. No outsourcing, no subcontracting: personal involvement at each stage of the editing process means consistently clean text, on deadline.
I edit trade, law and academic titles for publishing houses and selected self-publishing clients. I manage the editorial process from the development and content edit through the production edit to master set, including author relationships, commissioning artwork, managing artwork and photo budgets, commissioning photo research and commissioning permissions research – independently and invisibly. I review fiction manuscripts and write reader’s reports for publishing houses.
I’ve written and co-written 27 titles for South African schools and FET colleges, and have been overwriting manuscripts for ten years for content, structure and language level, often honing text for the second-language reader.
I have an MA in English (Creative Writing: Poetry) from UCT and full membership of the Professional Editors' Guild (PEG), the Southern African Freelancers' Association (SAFREA) and the Association of Non-fiction Authors of South Africa (ANFASA).
Satisfied clients include Penguin Random House, Jonathan Ball Publishers, NB Publishers and its Tafelberg imprint, Cengage Learning, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Pearson, COMPRESS.dsl, Juta Academic, Cassava Republic, HSRC Press, Troupant Publishing, FST Magazine and Macmillan South Africa.
