As a former editor at WIRED and British GQ, I know that great writing and reporting benefits from a rigorous, empathetic and experienced editor. As well as working on acclaimed magazine stories, I’ve also helped a number of authors with their book proposals and manuscripts, and edited branded content for major tech, retail and travel companies.
If you’re working on a book, a piece of journalism, writing a screenplay, producing branded content, or working on any other non-fiction project that could benefit from an experienced freelance editor, please get in touch. (Rates vary.)
