About me

Octopus Ink Editorial is run by me, Marc
Di Sotto. My background is as a researcher, an academic, a writer and a teacher – and what unites these different elements is a desire to share my passion for language, books and the written word. In 2015, I completed a PhD in English Literature at the University of Edinburgh, where I have taught part-time since 2010. I also worked for 8 years at the National Library of Scotland responding to research enquiries. Throughout this time, I worked in parallel as a freelance proofreader and editor.
