About me

Maryanne McKay - Canberra editor

Maryanne McKay
Accredited editor

Based in Canberra, I provide professional editing and proofreading services locally and nationally, achieving highly polished documents that communicate clearly and effectively.

I specialise in government and organisational reports, annual reports, academic journal articles, technical documents and resource manuals.

I have worked as a freelance editor for 10 years, qualifying in 2011 as an accredited editor with the Institute of Professional Editors. Before this, I worked in policy and research roles in the government, community and university sectors.

Please contact me to discuss your project.
