Freelance writing and editing

Hi – my name is Amelia Carruthers, and I’m a freelance copywriter, editor and academic tutor based in Chiswick, South-West London.

After completing an MA in Art History, History and Philosophy at the University of St. Andrews, I moved to Bristol, where I finished an M.Phil in Modern History. I worked as a writer and editor for an independent publishing company, before joining Oxford University Press and their digital publishing team as an Associate Marketing Manager. After relocating to London, I worked as the Communications Manager for the Society of Antiquaries, before moving onto my own freelance projects.

Writing and Editing Services

I now work in London as a freelance copywriter, editor and academic tutor. I specialise in online writing, proof-reading and editing for academic, cultural and charitable enterprises. However if you have any projects you would like to discuss, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I’m always on the look-out for new challenges (big or small)!

My own blog at

I am passionate about the arts, history, literature and creative endeavours – activities which I believe should be accessible to as many people as possible. Consequently, I write a blog which reflects my activities critiquing and documenting adventures into artistic, historical and philosophical goings-on. My writing has been featured on:
