My Background

Hello! I am Deborah Shaw, a professional editor and proofreader based in Dunedin, New Zealand.

I graduated from the University of Otago with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Philosophy. Additionally, I have a Diploma in Publishing from Whitireia, New Zealand’s only (and highly regarded) tertiary-level publishing qualification.

I enjoy working with students and academics to ensure that theses and articles are clear and logical. I particularly enjoy the arts and humanities and can help make sure your writing adheres to your department’s criteria.
