I usually use this blog to write about my wildlife experiences and other nature-related things, but this time it’s more of a personal post.
After five years working as a writer and editor for a leading wildlife charity, spending my days researching and writing about endangered species, I have finally taken the brave step of launching into a full-time freelancing career. It has taken nearly a year of planning and preparation, but as of today I am now officially self-employed! A scary but exciting new challenge.
I will mainly be offering proofreading and copy-editing services, but will also hopefully be continuing with some writing. Naturally, I’ll be specialising in science-related work, but I will also be offering editing services for other material, including fiction. My new website is Liz Shaw Editorial Services – please do take a look and pass it on to anyone who might be looking for a proofreader or editor.
I’ll definitely also be carrying on with all the wildlife-watching alongside the freelance editing, so keep an eye on this blog for all my latest adventures. (The above photo shows the view from my new ‘office’ (aka my flat) – hopefully I won’t get too distracted watching birds fly past!) And of course, if you are in need of a proofreader, copy-editor or writer, or indeed a general naturalist, you know where to come!
