About me

Maryanne McKay - Canberra editor

Maryanne McKay
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. Projects include government reports, annual reports, academic journal articles and resource manuals.

I have worked as a freelance editor for over 8 years, qualifying in 2011 as an accredited editor with the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd). Before this, I worked in policy and research roles in the government, community and university sectors.

Please contact me to discuss your project.

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