Charles Raspin

Editor, Copywriter, Marketer

Location icon United Kingdom

I am a versatile editor and copywriter with a passion for storytelling and an eye for detail. I cheerfully juggle a platter of priorities that shift and change on a daily basis, using my organizational abilities to co-ordinate deadlines across multiple different teams. I have a strong sense of narrative and presentation, and experience in reviewing manuscripts and pitches.

As a confident communicator, I am well-versed in liaising with agents, authors, licensors, and other teams. My experience with publishing software such as Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and MS Office help me to quickly pitch and implement solutions for unforeseen obstacles, and I always make sure to stay patient and good-humored while going the extra mile to support colleagues across every team.
