Hi there. I’m Camha (or call me Cammi), and I am an IPEd-accredited freelance editor and proofreader currently based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia.
I have worked on proofreading and copyediting jobs across a broad range of materials including educational textbooks, trade fiction and nonfiction titles, literary journals and reports for private organisations. I particularly enjoy working on short story anthologies. My clients include Wiley, Pearson, Magabala Books, Fremantle Press, UWA Publishing, Margaret River Press, Hachette, UQP and Westerly magazine, among others.
I am accredited with the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd), and I hold a Master of Publishing and Editing from Monash University. I previously worked in-house as a Development Editor at Oxford University Press, Melbourne, where I was responsible for project-managing new editions of the health, social work and nursing lists for higher education.
I have written feature articles for online travel, lifestyle and pop culture publications, and my work has appeared in The Huffington Post, SBS, Kill Your Darlings, Frankie, Junkee, Broadsheet, BuzzFeed, and elsewhere.
My short story, ‘Paper Cranes’, was commended in the 2020 Hunter Writers Centre Newcastle Short Story Award.
I previously sat on the Editorial Board of Margaret River Press.
