Brenda Stones' current portfolio combines lecturing, training, editing and writing. She devises modules and lectures for the Publishing Studies MA at City University. Brenda runs many training courses for the Publishing Training Centre, often customised for in-company use. She edits at every level, from self-publishing to academic texts. She wrote twenty home-learning titles for WHS own-brand, and also primary school textbooks for the Bangladesh government. This range of freelance work derives from years of full-time publishing, starting as graduate trainee at Cambridge University Press and finishing as Publishing Director at Oxford University Press, including smaller trade and independent presses in between.
