Who are we?

Kate Coe is a writer, editor and proofreader who has been working with Zoë for several years through the various small presses that Zoë manages. Kate has a background in library & information services, web design and administration, which has all combined into a passion for tweaking things until they are just right – particularly when it comes to errors and formatting! She works for Grimbold Books as an editor, proofreader and typesetter, as well as various independent clients. She is a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
Editor and Founder, Zoë Harris, is an author of fiction, trained editor and proofreader with a background in project management, software documentation and business writing. She studied professional writing and editing in Adelaide, South Australia before moving to Norway in 2006. Zoë is the leader of the Oslo Writers’ League, a member of PEN Australia and PEN International and the Australian Society of Authors. Previously a documentation specialist for Opera Software, Zoë started Book Polishers in 2013 to focus on editing and book production, and through her work with Grimbold Books and its imprints, has gained invaluable experience in editing fiction. She now has several small, independent presses as clients for editing, proofreading and book design.
