Let's work together!

Put your important work into my safe hands.

You've carried out the research, followed the guidelines,

done the writing, and completed the references.

You're almost ready to submit for assessment or publication.

You want to make sure that it's right, and I'm here to help.

This image tells a story.

The "real" hands on the keyboard are yours.

The hands reflected on the screen are mine.

Kristin Lush, Academic Editor based in Aotearoa New Zealand, wants to work with you and copy edit or proofread your important academic work. Contact her at

This is how I see us working together.


My work is a little bit of magic that perhaps only you will know has been done.  If we were the characters of one of my favourite childhood stories, "The Elves and the Shoemaker", you would be the shoemaker, and I would be one of the elves. You put the ideas and insights together

and I work while you sleep to make sure your final product is

"perfectly finished, not a stitch out of place".

I love this story because, in it, kindness and generosity are both given and received, artistry is treasured, and everyone lives

happily ever after. The relationship in the story is the kind I want 

to have with my clients. The care for craft in the story 

is the care I promise to put into your work. 

Let's work together.
