About Raewyn Whyte – writer, editor, remote copy editor, indexer, writing coach

I am based in New Zealand, and as I am up to 13 hours ahead of the rest of the world, I can work on your documents while you sleep — returning them to you ready for the next step, the next day, by arrangement. I have extensive experience as a technical writer, editor/proofreader and indexer.

I am a remote editor/proofreader and time shifting/teleworker for BookSprints Limited, the editor of Paged Media blog which champions the development of tools for producing beautiful ebooks, and the associate editor of Theatreview. I am the remote maintainer of two other blogs, working remotely to ensure their text is clean.

I am interested to find new opportunities and ways to extend my expertise and skills in:
— remote copy editing,  indexing, technical writing and editing including submissions, proposals, letters; manuals; reports; white papers; course design and creation; indexes
— third-party editing, theses and dissertations
— content research and development, collaborative writing processes
— performing arts writing (feature articles, profile interviews, previews, reviews, backgrounders, explainers)
