My name is Maureen Lee. The services I provide include content editing, copy editing, writing and researching.
For over 20 years I worked full-time as an editor at the New Zealand Parliament, editing text on a wide range of subjects. My duties included copy editing, proofreading, fact-checking and checking formatting. I developed editing style, wrote style guides and training material, and trained people to be editors.
I can quickly get to grips with any subject so that I can edit copy on it.
I work with any writing in English, including fiction and non-fiction, academic writing, writing for children and young adults, memoirs, histories, websites, reports, training material, transcripts and indexes.
I look forward to working with you.
