Writing and Editorial Services

Seymour Jacklin HS1smlrA writer’s task is to add value and bring clarity and quality to the rising tides of information we all have to manage, in an age when the written word multiplies exponentially.

As a writer and editor, I am ready to put the full force of my skills, expertise and experience behind your project. Perhaps we can help each other.

My Services

My clients consistently tell me I am easy to work with. As a freelancer, I offer flexibility and a tailored approach, listening carefully, learning quickly, staying open to a change of plan and keeping a cheerful and positive outlook on projects.

I have concrete experience in rewriting complex material for the web, based on user needs and the latest trends in content design. I have expertise in copy editing term papers, theses, proposals and technical documents, fiction and non-fiction to a high specification. I provide coaching and consultancy on grammar, style and the craft of written communication. I am also an experienced group facilitator and workshop leader in therapeutic and educational contexts.

In 10 years of freelancing, I have provided a range of services, making the best use of my skills in writing for the web, academic editing, rewriting technical and business documents, coaching, briefing, storytelling, and writing for performance.

My Values

  • Truth – Words can be used to dissemble, cover up and spin, but in my writing I have a commitment to honesty and accuracy.
  • Integrity – Another assignment is not “just another job”; it is an opportunity to strike a blow on behalf of good copy. I believe in this, passionately.
  • Generosity – I believe that co-operation rather than competition is a better way to operate in business and in life. I look to form relationships that are about passion, shared goals and mutual appreciation, rather than merely profit and self promotion.

My Qualifications

I have over ten years experience as a freelancer in a range of professional writing, editing and coaching contexts from writing story books with children to designing content for the UK government website.

I have a BA(Hons) in Anthropology and a diploma in Nursing.

I am a confident and engaging public speaker and I have run workshops on diverse topics from communal drumming, through storytelling, to group facilitation.

My passions include natural health and lifestyles, natural history, foraging, sustainability and green issues, animal welfare, spirituality, jazz and folk music, mental health, current affairs, modern European history and science fiction.
