Let's make your ideas leap off the page.
If you're in the humanities or social sciences, I'll make sure you:
Write clearly, accurately and fluently, even if English is not your first language
Strike the right tone for your audience, whether they're advanced scholars, students or the general public
Get rid of distractions such as typos and inconsistencies, so the reader can concentrate on your argument
Put the manuscript into your department's, journal's or publisher's house style, with the correct formatting, footnotes and references
Why choose me?
With a wealth of experience, I've seen the academic writing process from every angle.
I've been a student, researcher, lecturer and published author. I've supervised and examined PhDs. I've been a journal referee, and I've sat on editorial boards.
In addition to private individuals, my recent clients include the LSE, UCL, University of Copenhagen, University of Tampere, University of Jyväskylä and many more.
