Kate Trant – Sub-Editing Trainer
Kate was editorial lead for Black Dog Publishing (BDP) and Artifice books on architecture (Artifice), two affiliated, independent art and architecture publishing houses based in London. She currently writes and edits for UAL (University of the Arts London). known as Impact Case Studies in readiness for the next REF in 2021.
Kate’s experience during her time at BDP and Artifice is extensive. She wrote original text, edited the work of others and copy-edited and proof-read a large quantity and range of titles. Across the two houses, the published list numbered around 80 new books each year, each requiring a differing amount and type of input, from light-touch editing and proofing, to full-scale re-writing where necessary. Her work on the new business side of both companies involved securing contracts, working closely with new clients to bring books from first ideas to publication.
Kate has a great deal of experience in public-speaking and in training. Whilst at the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), I led the organisation’s work on health, well-being and the built environment. Kate delivered a range of different events from training events with planners, to major speaking events to groups of professionals including architects, designers and nurses, from 20 to 500.
Kate has written many articles and features for magazines and periodicals, on subjects to do with architecture and design. She has authored and edited three books.
