Rachel FinneganFreelance editor | Proofreader

Irish Academic Editing | Full Member of AFEPI Ireland

I am a tutor on CMP’s proofreading and editing course.

I have a BA and a PhD in classics, and am a full member of the Association of Freelance Editors, Proofreaders and Indexers of Ireland (AFEPI Ireland). I also have several professional qualifications from SfEP and the Publishing Training Centre (UK).

I have been running my own editing business, Irish Academic Editing, since 2015 and my skills include proofreading, copy editing, academic editing, academic writing, and editorial training.

My clients include academic publishers, academic institutions, local authorities, government agencies, and individual writers and researchers.

I was an academic administrator for three years and a lecturer in arts and humanities for 20 years. I am the author of six academic books, the last of which was published in June 2019, and numerous journal articles on the history of eighteenth-century travel and collecting.
