The brief

Regular editing and proofreading of print materials for Shakespeare’s Globe, the world-renowned theatre on London’s South Bank. I am engaged on a regular basis to proofread and edit publications for Shakespeare’s Globe, from theatre programmes to season brochures to the company’s HR handbook.

The challenge

With tight turnarounds before the materials must go to print, and sometimes last-minute changes to the text, I must ensure all copy reads well and is accurate, from the spelling of actors’ names to accurate performance times on calendars. This often involves research into the plays and cast - or in the case of the HR handbook, into the complexities of HR law and language.

The results

The fact that the Globe return to me again and again to give their publications the final ‘eagle-eye’ treatment is proof of the trust they place on my ability to spot any errors before they produce large print runs of very public materials.
