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, forthcoming). 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), Hypatia, Res Publica, Raisons Politiques, and Signs. 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.
