Monica Woods

Writer & Editor

United Kingdom

I’m a freelance editor and writer who spends a lot of time armchair-travelling – I edit inspirational reference books and destination content for Lonely Planet and I also write for BRITAIN magazine, LoveExploring, hibooks and Rough Guides.

My background is in print publishing, with stints in Managing Editor roles at the V&A and Rough Guides, so I’m used to dealing with chunky manuscripts, far-flung teams and tight deadlines. Nowadays, I work on a mixture of print and digital projects, including audio content and, most recently, children's books. Whatever the medium, I enjoy grappling with a brief and the challenge of finding just the right words.
