Academic and non-fiction editing
Academics – Can’t finish that journal article? Can’t get it published? Struggling with job applications or grant proposals? Are you a non-native speaker of English trying to publish in English-speaking journals? Want your academic research to reach a wider audience? Are you a graduate student struggling to edit your dissertation or thesis?
Non-fiction writers - Are you struggling to take your book to the next level? Need a second pair of eyes on an essay, opinion piece or article? Want to improve your online content?
I can help.
As well as having a successful academic research career, I am the editor of Stephen Jeffreys’ Playwriting: Structure, Character, How and What to Write (Nick Hern Books, 2019). I co-wrote Page to Stage: Our Country’s Good (Nick Hern Books, 2010). I was an editor at the website New Left Project for three years where I edited academics’ work to be accessible to a general audience.
I have been a peer reviewer for the journals American Political Science Review, Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy (CRISPP), European Journal of Political Theory, Hypatia, Res Publica, Raisons Politiques, Signs and Social Theory and Practice. I have taught at Oxford and Cambridge universities. I have a Cert-TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and have taught in the UK, Ireland, Spain and China. I have good working knowledge of French and Spanish, and basic German.
