Mary Elgar

I am a freelance editor, specialising in copy editing, proofreading, transcribing memoirs and oral history writing. My thesis researched the use of narratology to analyse oral history anthologies about migration. My interests lie in history, recording it and preserving it for future generations. With a nursing background, I am also fluent in nursing terminology for editing nursing and para-medical theses/documents.
