I love what I do. And I love that every day I can do what I love … read

After studying for a diploma in professional writing and editing at RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) 16 years ago, I worked for various publishers
and publishing-related organisations including: Writers Victoria; Express Media (publishers of youth magazine Voiceworks); National Book Council; Lonely Planet and black dog books (children’s books publisher). In addition I have been working as a manuscript assessor for the Writers Victoria (and previously for the National Book Council).

At the same time I have been freelancing as a proofreader and editor for clients ranging from book publishers and PR/design firms to self-publishers and education publishers. I then launched Karen Tait Services and am now available full-time to accommodate clients’ needs.

As a marketing and publicity professional in a former life, I became skilled at understanding the needs of markets and publics and along the way honed my liaison skills. This chapter of my life included working for/with: the Melbourne International Film Festival; the Australian Film Institute; Cinema Nova (as General Manager); Newvision Film Distributors and operating Karen Tait Publicity.

Oh, and did I mention I love to read?
