The intro

Hello, my name is Will Bramhill. I am a newspaper sub-editor (print and digital). I have also worked in training, public relations and lobbying.

I spent years learning my craft on in the provinces before moving to Fleet Street, where my regular engagements include the Financial Times, the FT 125 and The Sunday Times.

I work on newspapers, websites and magazines for single “fill-in” shifts or for longer engagements. I am also happy to accept one-off commissions to check and/or rewrite any kind of corporate documents, including company, conference and meeting reports – confidentiality assured.

I am based in Colchester, Essex, which is 50 minutes by train from London, but I am happy to accept work from anywhere in the world.

What I can do for you

I am the extra eyes that everyone needs after they commit words to paper or screen. No matter how good a writer you are, the gremlins can spoil it for you. You aim to make an impression … but one wrong word, a tangled thought or misplaced apostrophe can ruin the whole piece.

If your language lets you down, it probably costs you readers and/or customers too.

This is where I come in. I will make your words sing. I will erase errors. I will fact-check. I will make sure your message is clear and as brief as it needs to be. I will check your style for consistency and advise you on possible legal pitfalls.

If English is your second language, I can help you lose the rough edges that come with a straight translation, adding idiom if necessary.

Talking tech

I am familiar with a range of apps, including Methode, Adobe (InDesign and InCopy), Quark, the Office suite, the iWork suite and Blocs for Mac. I can also use Affinity Photo, Publisher and Designer. I am a fast learner and can quickly pick up the basics of most editing, page-design and web-publishing programs.
