Resources for editors

Bits and pieces to help with your business


Because we’re better when we support each other

This page collects some of the resources I have created (and often use in my own editing work). I make them freely available for other editors to download and use as they wish. All I ask in return is that you include my name and a link to my website if sharing them elsewhere. This is still a page in progress, so check back regularly for more resources and helpful templates, etc.
