Introducing the DocEditor and her many helpful colleagues.
About the DocEditor
Hello there. I'm Cathy Tingle and, as my title suggests, I’m a doctor and an editor. After gaining my PhD in English from the University of Leeds I worked for a decade in communications in the heart of London. In 2011 I became editor of Edinburgh for Under Fives, a popular guidebook for parents and carers (www.efuf.co.uk). I also took on other freelance writing and editing work, ranging from producing punchy copy for construction businesses to penning a column in a parenting magazine, from editing research reports to proofreading academic theses. I've copy-edited 50 textbooks for Routledge and Palgrave Macmillan, in subjects from law to film studies, business to social work. 

You could say that words are my thing.

In addition to my PhD I have postgraduate qualifications in marketing from the CIM and the IDM.

Slightly obsessive about doing a good job, I like to think that every project I accept is completed to an excellent standard. But please, don’t just take my word for it. If you’re after a second opinion, here are my testimonials.  

About the Wider Practice

DocEditor is part of a large network of writers and editors, each with their own terms and fees, who can be called on if time is short. I also have colleagues who are excellent designers, if you need to make your documents sing, and website producers, if you want to maximise their impact online.
