Earl Grey Editing is owned and run by Elizabeth Fitzgerald. As a freelance editor since 2004, she has worked with a wide variety of forms ranging from epic poetry and fantasy novels through to research proposals and university theses.
Elizabeth graduated from the University of Canberra in 2008 with a Bachelor of Communications (Honours) and majored in Creative Writing and Literary Studies.
She has been a committee member of the CSfG for a number of years, serving as Secretary in 2011, 2012, 2015 & 2016. She also previously ran their novel critiquing circle.
Earl Grey Editing’s blog was nominated for a Ditmar Award for Best Fan Publication in Any Medium in 2017. Although Earl Grey Editing lost, Elizabeth won the category that year with a team of other interviewers for the Australian Speculative Fiction Snapshot.
Elizabeth was a 2016 Aurealis Awards judge and also reviews for The Skiffy and Fanty Show.
She has a weakness for books, loose-leaf tea and silly dogs.
