About me

David Powning 5Whatever your project, from a book to a magazine feature or copy for a website, I can help. As well as having more than 11 years of freelance experience, I am a professional member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders in the UK and a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors.

Since 2004 I’ve freelanced for many magazine publishing companies, working on the following publications/websites:

Amateur Photographer; Autocar; Campaign; Children and Young People Now; Conference & Incentive Travel; Current Archaeology; Decanter; eGaming Review; Event; Independent Nurse; Leading Edge (British Airways); Marketing; Military History Monthly; Planetgolfreview.com; Planning; PR Week; Screen International; Solicitors Journal; Sport; The Club (British Airways); The Drum; Third Sector; and Up To Speed (British Airways).

I have also proofread a number of national guides for Bradt Travel, and in the past couple of years have started to assist independent authors – an enormously rewarding task, as I count myself among them. This takes the form of either copy-editing or proofreading, and if you’re unsure about the difference between the two, don’t worry – you’re not alone. Click on the ‘Copy-editing & proofreading’ tab to find out more.

Fill out the contact form below or get in touch via Twitter and we’ll take it from there – with no obligation to proceed if you’re not entirely happy with what I can do for you.

Thanks for dropping by – I look forward to hearing from you.
