I have over 20 years’ experience proofreading, editing and writing in a variety of professional communications roles. I have worked in both local and central government as well as the financial services industry.

My experience encompasses many types of material: research reports, marketing literature, blogs, lobbying campaigns, speeches, articles, powerpoint presentations and many more. Some of my work has involved taking complex or technical writing and ‘translating’ it into accessible language for non-expert audiences. I have also worked with non-native English speakers to get their work into shape.

I am a member of the Society of Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and a qualified proofreader, passing the Proofreading Course of the Publishing Training Centre (PTC) with Merit.

So whatever your project – from a 30-page report to a 300-word blog – I will help you ensure it is well written and tailored effectively to its intended audience. With thorough editing and careful proofreading I will achieve high standards of accuracy.


John is a great guy and the best proofreader you can ever have. …well, actually he is much more than that: he saved my book. Thanks to you, John!


I have worked with a number of editors and proofreaders. The field is robust since I have been generally satisfied. John Ingamells is, however, superb for a number of reasons:

First, he is accommodating. I was recently under a strict publishing deadline and he managed to find the required time to work on my manuscript.

Second, he is resilient. This project, an edited volume, required coordination with 11 contributors, and, though arduous, he completed the process on time.

Third, he is truly a gentleman. He agreed to work closely with the publisher, as well as myself as the editor, and he did so with grace and professional acumen.

In short, I recommend John highly as a proofreader par excellence.



John did a great job for me and my co-editor. We contacted him to proofread an edited book and were highly satisfied with the results. John was extremely professional, prompt, responsive, organize and reliable. He has an eye for detail and delivered the reviewed version even before the deadline. I would certainly work with him again and do not hesitate for a second to recommend him.
