Lucy is a freelance editor with clients in both Australia and South-East Asia.
In Australia Lucy has completed editing projects for clients including ACE, Victoria University, Kangan Batman TAFE, Holmesglen TAFE, Sustainable Energy Authority and ACME.
Lucy’s South-East Asian work focuses on editing English language translations (from Khmer, French, Vietnamese, Japanese, Korean, Dutch and Italian) of documents including laws, subdecrees, legal judgements, economic and research papers, project proposals and reports, government documents, speeches and more.
Editing and substantially reworking narratives – both folk tales and modern texts – for an English language audience is a smaller but significant part of her work.
Lucy is a full member of the Victorian Society of Editors.
With experience in the TAFE and community education sectors, I am a popular teacher of creative writing. Through structured and personalised programs I help students develop the skills and confidence they need to achieve their individual writing goals.
I am a regular teacher and lecturer at RMIT in their Professional Writing and Editing and Short Course programs.
Workshops on Development of Character and Setting for Writers Victoria: Students learned a range of techniques to help develop memorable characters and rich settings.
I’m available to facilitate workshops for writing groups on a range of areas: character development, setting, plot, historical writing including research, voice, career strategy for your writing career, and more.
I have taught emerging Cambodian writers at the Nou Hach Literary Association, an organisation that I remain in contact with.
I am available for mentoring through Writers Victoria, or privately. If you’d like to know more, just leave a message on the Contact page and I’ll get back to you.
I believe in the importance of developing both writing and reading skills and habits, while also looking at individual pieces of writing – both short and long form.
