Who we are

CopyCats is run by Stefanie Van de Peer and Richie McCaffery.

Stefanie has a degree in Germanic Languages and lived and worked in the UK for 12 years. She obtained her PhD in Film Studies from the University of Stirling in Scotland and taught courses at university level. She has a passion for writing, for languages and the arts and, of course, for cats.

Richie got his PhD in Scottish literature from the University of Glasgow, where he was the recipient of a full scholarship from the Carnegie Trust. He also worked as a teaching assistant at the university. He is a widely published poet with two pamphlet collections and a book-length collection to his name. He is an experienced writer on literary subjects, a researcher, editor of manuscripts and poetry magazines and a prolific reviewer.

We are happy to work on all sorts of texts – creative, commercial and academic – from all types of disciplines. As long as they are written in English or Dutch, we are interested and can improve them.
