About Me

I’m James, an editor and proofreader with over two decades’ experience in the publishing industry. I am a professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA).

I'm a native English speaker (British national) working in UK and US English as a freelance copy editor and proofreader. I help individuals, publishers, and corporate clients make their text clear and consistent, ready for submission or publication. I specialize in nonfiction, working on a wide range of materials including books, corporate marketing materials, press releases, papers, and articles. Subject areas I have worked in include maths, life science, political science, insurance, aviation, medicine, and ELT and educational publishing.

My career began at one of the UK’s most popular educational publishers, writing and editing maths, science, and language books for schools. I later spent a decade at a trade magazine publisher, serving as editor of an international air rescue magazine (combining aviation and medicine) as well as working on health and travel insurance titles.

I’d love to hear from you to discuss how I can help with your projects.
