Got some virgin copy that needs cleaning up? I understand that feeling when you’re too close to a piece of writing to take it to the next level. And I’m here for you. From magazine sub-editing to brand copy, internal comms and books, I will be the word surgeon you always wanted on your team. That’s me. The Word Serge.
Recent editing projects include:
The Rumpus Room and Other Stories from the Suburbs
We turned this collection of short stories about architecture and design — part memoir, part observation, part fiction — into a sell-out book, which attracted television, print and radio coverage.
“Nicky did an exceptional job editing my book The Rumpus Room. She was thoughtful, insightful and showed a delicate and respectful hand when it came to polishing and finessing my wonky prose. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
We sub-edit each issue to polish the content to its finest sheen. Based on the men’s street-style blog Men In This Town, MITT is a printed digest capturing the everyday man in his natural habitat. Through profiles, interviews, features and photo essays, MITT takes a closer look at who the men on the street are and their particular approach to the many facets of life.
“Nicky is a pleasure to work with as a subeditor. Her speed, attention to detail and adaptability are a large asset in getting MITT magazine to print on a quarterly basis.”
–Giuseppe Santamaria, Founder, MITT
