Between May 1998 and April 2000 I was the full-time editor of Midsummer Book’s twice-monthly health title, responsible for the editorial planning, production and delivery of this highly successful medical part-work.
My duties included managing the in-house team of designers, commissioning editors and editors, plus an external team of medical specialists, contributors, artists and photographers – as well as getting the magazine out on time.
• Planning and continuity of the entire contents in advance.
• Designing and laying out pages when required.
• Extensive in-theatre experience, photographing surgery and interviewing surgeons while they worked, documenting procedures for publication. I worked with surgeons post-operatively to ensure my features were detailed, 100 percent accurate and correctly illustrated with my photographs plus commissioned artwork.
• Packaging my titles for numerous foreign markets and assisting with the creation of online editions.
