Freelance writing and proofreading


I have been a freelance writer since 1983, supplying newspaper and magazine articles and writing brochures, puzzles and crosswords. I have often provided pictures as part of the package. Clients included:

former clients

More recently I have specialised in editing and proofreading for a variety of clients, such as BACP, Sage Publishing, Scholastic, PCCS books and various private clients who copyedit for big companies and individual authors needing their book proofed.

Among these clients, I recently freelanced for BACP for 12 years as editor of their 54-page quarterly journal for young people’s counsellors, BACP Children, Young People & Families, for which I commissioned, interviewed, edited and proofed.

I am happy to accept commissions for writing, editing and proofreading, and can often work at short notice to tight deadlines. Please email me with your requirements.
