Hi!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm James, a freelance writer and designer.

More recently I spent decade in B2B magazines, including serving as editor for 87 issues of an international air rescue magazine. For a potted work history, check out my LinkedIn profile.

See below for more detail on my writing work, including past subject areas, and examples of my print and web design work.

Writing

Helping you connect with your readers

My passion is to create engaging writing that informs, educates and entertains the reader.

I have two decades' professional publishing experience having worked on international trade magazines and educational resources (school books) with in-house roles at CGP Books and Voyageur Publishing & Events as a writer and editor. This has included a range of writing assignments from journalistic magazine feature articles and news stories, to school revision guides and workbooks. Alongside this, I also have extensive experience in proofreading and editing, including copy-editing and structural editing.

For more on my work history, see my LinkedIn profile.

I enjoy picking up fresh subject areas, but I have particular experience in:

  • aviation
  • health
  • insurance
  • science
  • maths
  • languages.

Now living in Poland, I'm originally from the UK. As well as being a native speaker of standard British English, I have varying degrees of knowledge of Spanish, French, Polish and Italian.

If you have a project, please get in touch to discuss how I can help you connect with your readers.

Design

Helping you reach your audience

Throughout my two decade's professional pubilshing experience, design has gone alongside writing and editing. I have been working in page design (desktop publishing) since the early 90s, and added web design around the turn of this century. For print, I mainly work in Indesign. For the web, I particularly focus on hand-crafted, html and css-based designs that are responsive (adjust to fit the screen size). I also have experience in creating Mail Chimp email templates, and have a secret love of vector graphics.

If you have a project, please get in touch to discuss how I can help you reach your audience.
