Meet Camden Luxford, AE

I trained as an economist and political scientist, but after university I realised that what I really love to do is read new ideas and stories – and help people put their ideas and stories into clear, beautiful English. To that end, I gained accreditation from the Institute of Professional Editors in 2018. I am continually upgrading and refining my skills as an editor, reader and writer.

As an editor of documents by ESL writers, I consider it my job to help you write better: by explaining my changes, pointing out the things you are doing well and making extensive suggestions to strengthen your academic English.

For native speakers, I’ll be as hands-on or hands-off as you like: my role is to make your voice shine and that means applying grammar rules and style guidelines intelligently and sensitively – writing (and editing) is a craft, not a science.


Camden edited one of the Australian Institute of International Affairs’ longstanding titles – Emerging Scholars – and produced a volume to make us proud. She excelled at working with younger authors to bring their work up to the academic standard we expect.

I live and work on the traditional lands of the Turrbal and Jagera people. I respect and honour their Elders past, present and emerging. I acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this stolen land.

Sovereignty was never ceded.
