Focus of Editing
Helen’s insider knowledge of marketing, through her career as a marketer for some of the world’s leading brands, was translated for teen’s in her empowering book. As an ambassador for healthy choices among teenage girls growing up in a media marketing age, Helen wanted to engage girls in the conversation around their sovereignty, their choices and creating their own future.
Having a knowledge of marketing from the corporate angle, the editing focus was to eradicate any jargon and talk on a level with teens. Ensuring the tone was neither patronising nor too ‘try-hard cool’ was the challenge throughout editing, as well as applying the beta reader feedback. Word choice was important, along with age-appropriate language and clarity.
