Mark Bolsover, Edinburgh-based writer and editor.

‘I am a writer of often complex experimental work and it was obvious that Richard is a careful and attentive editor. He takes great pains to produce clean, high-quality copy, working generously to facilitate the idiosyncrasies of a writer’s work. It was a great pleasure to work with him.’

Dr. Marc Garrett, Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director at Furtherfield, London.

‘Richard worked with me on my Ph.D. thesis and has since copy edited other essays for academic publication. Having someone who has got your back is valuable when writing about complex histories and ideas, and Richard can deal with a range of contexts. Furthermore, his friendliness and professional timing both help to keep stress levels down.’

Conor Baird, artist and writer based in Glasgow.

‘Having known little about publishing myself, I was grateful to have Richard’s insight. Furthermore, he treated my work with sensitivity and diligence in an open and collaborative manner that allowed me to interrogate, edit and play with my writing. Ultimately, this led to me feeling confident with a polished version of my work, which was suitable for publishing.’

From Derbyshire with love
