APA fluent

I work predominately and am fluent with APA (sixth and seventh editions), but I also work with a range of other style guides, including the Australian Style Manual, the Oxford Guide to Style, MLA, CMoS and Harvard. Talk to me about your institution’s preferences.

Professionally qualified and experienced

I’m a professional member of both the Institute of Professional Editors (Australia) and the Chartered Institute of Editors and Proofreaders (UK), with a postgraduate qualification in editing and communication from the University of Melbourne. Find out more about me.
