After many years of teaching and lecturing, both in the UK and in various countries across the world, I am now working as a literary translator from Dutch to English.

I also take on proofreading and editing work, particularly of an academic or literary nature. I have both academic and more general editing and proofreading experience and will treat your words and thoughts with care and respect.

I continue to maintain an interest in teaching and have a long-term relationship with the University of Newcastle. See here for further details.

Antoinette Fawcett - October 2018


Without silence, words cannot find shape.

Without a quiet centre, sentences can't grow.
