About me

Maryanne McKay - Canberra editor

Maryanne McKay
IPEd-accredited editor

Based in Canberra, I provide professional editing and proofreading services locally and nationally.

I work with government departments, universities, organisations and authors to achieve highly polished documents that communicate clearly and are grammatically correct.

I have worked as a freelance editor for over 8 years. Before this, I worked in policy and research roles in the government, community and university sectors.

In 2011, I qualified as an accredited editor (by examination) with the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd).

For more about editing, and why to use an accredited editor, visit the IPEd website.
