Union StUnion St

By Courtney

What will you be doing at Union St?

Mainly writing regional cookbooks, editing recipes and proofreading.

How did you get into this area of work?

I have worked in publishing for nearly a decade. Having been an editorial assistant and assistant editor, I have been a book editor specialising in food and drink books for 8 years, working for publishing companies in London. I decided to go freelance when I moved back up north in 2015.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I love getting cooking inspiration from new recipes, tips and techniques from authors and seeing the finished results of printed books. It’s a nice balance between creativity and attention to detail, which suits me perfectly!

What type of individuals / organisations are you looking to work with in the future?

Book publishers, websites, magazines… anyone who needs a helping hand with developing, editing or writing recipes or food-related copy. I can also do copy-writing, editing and proofreading for lots of other businesses, too, so it would be nice to expand into other areas.

What are you looking to get out of Union St?

A structured working day away from home, some friendly chat over a cup of tea and to meet some new people. Especially sharing problems and solutions to do with starting your own business and working on your own.
