    Freelance editor at EditUp

    After I graduated, I wanted to gain experience and get even better at what I like doing best: writing and editing. I registered with the Chamber of Commerce and started working as a freelance editor at my own editing business 'EditUp', where I write, translate and edit academic and publicity texts for various clients. I work in Dutch and English for both digital and print media. I also have a part-time job as a content editor at Oberst BV.

    The knowledge that I acquired in the Master's track in Writing, Editing and Mediating has proven indispensable in both my jobs. I chose this track because of my passion for the English language and literature, and because I wanted to become an editor. The programme enables you to study interesting literature while at the same time training you in the field of editing. It taught me to write and edit, and also to support my writing and editing choices with relevant theories. I can now use this knowledge and these skills to justify my texts to my clients. The opportunity to gain practical experience in a placement gives the programme great added value. I was given the opportunity to do an internship at the Marketing, Communication and Sales department of Dutch National Opera & Ballet. I was responsible for writing, editing and translating texts such as biographies, flyers, interviews and articles for the magazine Odeon and the internal personnel magazine.

    The combination of academic and practical perspectives will help you translate your knowledge and understanding to the labour market. In my view, this is the strength of this Master's track!
