Jeremy Kirker has many years’ experience in publishing and newspaper production. After working as a crime and courts correspondent for a number of English newspapers and news agencies, he turned to sub-editing in the early 1990s, most recently holding the post of chief sub-editor of The Irish News, a multi-award-winning title based in Belfast. He has won a number of awards himself.
This work involved intense proofreading and copy-editing to exacting schedules and deadlines on a nightly basis.
For some years, also in the early 1990s, he was managing director of a small publishing company in London, specialising in motor-cycling titles and ephemera. In 1989, he established an antiquarian bookselling business (www.notablebritishtrials.com) specialising in criminology, law and the Notable British Trials series.
As a professional member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, he is bound by the society's code of conduct. He is also a full member of the Association of Freelance Editors, Proofreaders and Indexers of Ireland, and the Editors' and Proofreaders' Alliance of Northern Ireland
