About me

I’m an editor and proofreader with over six years’ experience as a freelancer and publishing professional. I’ve worked for a major self-help publisher on memoirs, cookbooks and well-being guides; helped fantasy authors develop fast-paced, complex and magical series; mentored authors to help transform their ideas into novels; and taught university students how to edit every aspect of their prose, from the macro elements to sentence-level details.

My qualifications:
• Entry-level member of the Chartered Institute for Editing and Proofreading (CIEP)
• MLitt Publishing Studies (1st with distinction) from the University of Stirling
• BA Creative Writing and English Literature from the London Metropolitan University
• Developmental Editing: Fiction Theory course – Sophie Playle | Liminal Pages
• Brush Up Your Grammar course – CIEP
• How to Write the Perfect Fiction Editorial Report course – Louise Harnby | Fiction Editor & Proofreader
• Conscious Language Toolkit for Editors – Rabbit with a Red Pen

What People Say

I’ve worked with Clem a few times before, and she’s fantastic! Each time I give her a manuscript to work with she returns it 10x stronger. I’d wholeheartedly recommend Clem for every stage of the editing journey!

Clem is amazing with words. She edited my query letter and synopsis and made it all much more engaging.
