About My Company
My freelance editing company, Bishop Editing, is something I have wanted to do for a while. There are a few reasons why I started this business.
A couple of years ago, I noticed I was picking up grammar and spelling mistakes in most things that I read. As such, I decided to take steps to build on my skills in order to eventually make a living and help other people in the process. I specifically decided to have my own freelance business because I like the flexibility of controlling how much I work, how much I can earn from my work and where I can work.
I live in the south east of Melbourne, Australia. I have had a passion for the English language my whole life. My parents encouraged my sister and me to read a lot when we were growing up. From there, I have developed a lifelong love for reading just about anything. I particularly enjoy history books and biographies.
I have a background in libraries, so I have some experience with the written word. I enjoyed working in libraries, but I wanted to expand my options to find a career based on the skills I already had. As a result, I enrolled in a professional writing and editing course, which gave me the determination and encouragement to be where I am today.
