About

"With my own PhD I wanted an editor to care about my thesis as if it were their own. I can be trusted to be that someone for you."

Meet Dr Kathryn Edgeworth, the founder and CEO behind little big editing:

"I know a lot about writing and that's one of the reasons I started this venture. I'm working on making writing easier, with more accessible, quality feedback for people of all abilities.

My work is about embracing writing and helping others to make their work shine. It's about people thinking differently about how words are organised and unpacking the mystery around this.

In this industry, it's hard to get trusted feedback from experienced, specialist, PhD qualified academics who will read every word of a document. Too many companies simply run a thesis through editing software without reading a page or thinking carefully about how words and sentences in a document are organised. This doesn't lead to success or learning.

Don't get stuck with a computer reading your work. Or with an editor who rushes through your work quickly just to grab your cash. We offer real specialists, real PhDs and real people who read every word of your precious work - with care and attention. That's why we're different.

With my own PhD, I wanted an editor to care about my thesis as if it was their own. I can be trusted to be that someone for you."

Kathryn Edgeworth is a writer, editor, mentor and speaker, based out of Melbourne and South West Victoria, Australia. She has published internationally on equity and diversity and is on a mission to make an impact. She also runs the company Little Big Editing, mentors higher education students in research, and teaches young people how to be better readers, writers and critical thinkers.
