The world of publishing opened up to me at Cambridge University Press and at Seagull Books in India where I learned and was involved in the end-to-end process of book-making. Apart from editing, proofreading and designing a book, I acquired in-depth and hands-on knowledge of various facets of the publishing industry—print and production, marketing, publicity and distribution.
In 2012, when Seagull Books author Mo Yan won the Nobel Prize in Literature, I got the privilege of being one of the proofreaders on his book POW!
Designing and editing Christa Wolf's last story August, writing textbooks for Macmillan Education, helping set up the Seagull School of Publishing, training four batches of young talented students in the craft of editing, helping a young first-time Bulgarian author publish her dream book are only some of the other highlights of my journey so far.
After I moved to the US, I realized that my love for travel equals my love for words and images. Freelancing gave me a chance to indulge in both and let one experience enrich the other. Since then I have worked with several mainstream publishing houses as well as independent authors, written textbooks for schools as well as articles for websites, crafted magazines for literary groups as well as designed presentations for corporates.
Feel free to look at a sample of my work in my Portfolio.
Every project I have had the privilege of working on stemmed from great conversations and led me to meet incredible people. To me, every text, every image tells a story. And telling it is a collaborative effort. Reach out to me if you want to collaborate in telling your story.
PUBLISHERS AND COLLABORATORS
Sohini is the best editor you can hope for. She poured her heart and soul into my project. I strongly feel she helped me maximize the potential of my manuscript, and improved my own writing skills. Sohini’s observations and suggestions about clarity of details helped make my newest novel, Keyhole Saw. —Kalina Panayotova, author.
As an editor, Sohini is extremely dedicated and meticulous. She is a thorough professional and very warm at heart. She has an eye for detail and her work speaks volumes about her.—Ritika Agarwal, author.
Sohini Ghose was the editor on a number of my translation projects between 2012 and 2015 and I always found her extremely diligent in her work, bringing a sensitive and judicious eye to a text, not to mention a cheerful disposition.—Chris Turner, translator.
Sohini has edited two of my books that I published from Oxford University Press (Delhi) and Routledge (London/New York). She is an experienced copy editor, very methodical and meticulous. I will strongly recommend her for editing books and articles.—Abhijit Dasgupta, author.
I worked with Sohini when she developed content for two textbooks for Macmillan. She has a keen eye for detail and is always willing to go that extra mile to ensure that the product is of exceptional quality.—Madhurima Chatterjee, senior editor, previously with Macmillan Education, India.
I have known Sohini in a professional capacity for nearly four years as fellow editors at a reputed English-language publishing house. I can vouch for her command on the language and her eye for detail, two qualities essential in an editor. Having worked closely with her, I can also testify to Sohini’s commitment to producing quality work, even in times of time crunch. She is a patient, articulate and kind person with a likeable sense of humour.—Sohini Dey, subeditor at CureJoy.
Sohini Ghose has been an efficient and reliable resource to work with. We at VinoKilo/DarpDecade have felt extremely confident when outsourcing work to her.
