Caricature by P. Corless

I was born in Salisbury and grew up in Wiltshire. In 1996, I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a First Class Honours Degree in English Literature. I also have an MA in Creative Writing (Pass with Distinction) from Bath Spa University.

I have worked as a TV-listings writer for Broadcasting Dataservices (part of Red Bee Media), a proofreader and editorial assistant for The Yellow Partnership in Manchester, a proofreader for Pindar Set, and, most recently, a TV-listings sub-editor for Global Listings.

I set up The Whole Proof in May 2009 and am based in Kelham Island, Sheffield.

I am a Professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
