He has a keen eye for detail and is able to get to grips with new topics very quickly. (Dr Victoria Nash - Director of Graduate Studies/Policy and Research Fellow, Oxford Internet Institute, Oxford University.)
Feature writing / Journalism
Excellent journalist – delivers copy on time and to length. Minimal editing needed. (Johann Tasker - Director, Rural City Media)
'Writes to brief, with minimum of fuss'
Robert always comes in with those absolutely core freelance prerequisites: on time, to brief, with clean copy and a minimum of fuss. You couldn’t ask for more. (Nic Paton - Commissioning Editor, Local Government Chronicle)
Book writing help
'I recommend him without reservation'
Robert did a great job of editing and proofing my text ... and an even better one of being an industry outsider who got to grips with the arguments presented in my book – I can recommend his services without reservation. (Derek James - Author of Fanbase Revolution)
'His input was invaluable'
I learned so much from Robert – his input was invaluable. I am now writing with confidence and avoiding many wasted hours and frustration that I endured previously. (Bob Hurn - Author of Go Forth and Multiply: 7-Day Profit-Boosting Plan)
'Robert put me at ease from our first meeting'
Robert had the ability to put me at ease from our first meeting, and I trust him to give me a balanced viewpoint, focus and direction. (Gillian Lake - Author of Coping with Dying, A Handbook for Carers and Cared-for)
'Constructive criticism and enthusiasm'
I joined Robert`s writing group to improve my writing skills. His
constructive criticism and enthusiasm has helped me enormously to maintain
my momentum and to bring a fresh perspective to the book. I also enjoy
sharing the writing experience with the other members of the group and their
opinions are always helpful. (Nigel Moor - working on second edition of his book, The Look and Shape of England.)
'Stimulating and helpful'
I find Robert's small writing group both stimulating and helpful. We - the budding writers - are all different; trying to tell completely different tales. The meeting process generates constructive comment and criticism that encourages rather than dismays. Robert adds to this through his experience in both writing and publishing spheres, which he injects through the specific themes, such as marketing or editing, around which he structures our meetings. (Richard Cullen - working on a book about First World War.)
