Hi, I’m Tom Lawson, a freelance writer, editor and proofreader pursuing my lifelong obsession with words and language.

I am an adaptable writer and can alter my style to suit a wide variety of audiences. During my career I have produced copy for everything from national newspapers, to major crowdfunding campaigns and academic texts, to social media marketing posts. As a journalist I love delving into new topics and have covered a broad range of subjects, with a particular focus on the environment, social justice and ethical issues.

This site shows just a small sample of my writing, which has appeared in numerous publications including The GuardianNew Internationalist, Positive News, Open DemocracyYes! Magazine, Occupy, The Outdoor Adventure Guide, TruthoutInternational Political Forum and Soapbox.

I also spent three years as an assistant editor at Positive News – the constructive journalism magazine. There I gained extensive experience of proofreading, subediting, fact checking and copywriting, and throughout my career have nurtured a deep fondness for accurate spelling and grammar.
