Welcome to the website of
Nik Prowse
Editorial Services

If you have an academic, technical or educational book or paper that needs editing, or a book manuscript that needs guiding through production, then you need me. By hiring me you will have chosen a well-rounded publishing professional, a creative and diplomatic problem-solver with a client-focused approach. I am responsive, have very keen attention to detail and am able to work to tight deadlines. I am based in the cathedral city of Durham, England.

I am looking to expand my editorial project management portfolio in 2018. Currently I manage a small medical journal and a number of multi-volume book projects. I also undertake copy-editing work in the fields of medicine, biology, schools science and beyond. Do get in touch!

Having recently worked on numerous schools projects involving the new 9-1 numerical scale for GCSEs, I am well placed for development editing, copy-editing and project management of schools textbooks being written or versioned for the new system. My portfolio extends to primary maths and science too. Contact me for details of how I can help.

In March 2018 I attended a Publishing Training Centre workshop on project management tools for editorial professionals. I learned about some interesting approaches to managing projects efficiently and proactively, and am looking forward to putting them into practice!
