New website

Hello everyone, I’m Sam Hawcroft and this is the first post on this new website I’ve set up to promote my services as a skilled proofreader, copy editor and designer. This site is still under construction, and I’ll be putting up more details and examples of my work soon – but if you’d like to contact me to arrange a job, please don’t hesitate to do so via the contact page.

I’m based in Hull and over the years I’ve been a senior sub-editor at the Hull Daily Mail, Teletext assistant editor and TV listings manager at the Press Association, and more recently the editor/designer of H&E naturist, the world’s leading naturist magazine. I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, and achieved a Merit in the Publishing Training Centre’s Basic Proofreading Course – the only such course generally recognised by the industry.

I’ve written and edited features on a variety of topics including travel and sport, and am a keen Hull City fan. But don’t let that put you off contacting me…
