Editing Experience:

August 2017 to present: Editor of ‘Outlook’ Parish Magazine: I have been editor of my local parish magazine, OUTLOOK (Great Dunmow and Barnston) since August 2017. Thank you to Sally, for your training, help and advice as co-editor. See tribute below.

From June 2017, over several months of training,  I became familiar with Microsoft Publisher,  the design programme for the  40 page, A5 magazine.

My role is, firstly, to rearrange the twenty pages of adverts each month; secondly, to receive and research editorial from contributors for the other twenty pages. I change these features into house style and proofread; finally,  illustrations and images are added to give interest. The magazine is delivered to a distribution area of 4,550 houses and rising.

“After ten years of loyal service as editor of OUTLOOK, Sally is finally stepping down.  She has done a wonderful job of training her successor, Annie Deakins, who is taking over as our new editor.” Endorsed by Elaine – Publicity Group, St Mary’s Church, Great Dunmow; November 2017.

“My thanks to Annie, who has taken on the role of editor of OUTLOOK with such energy and enthusiasm.” Sally, retired editor of ‘Outlook’ Parish magazine; January 2018.
