Helping people put their stories and ideas into clear, beautiful English: structural editing, copyediting, proofreading, and advice and coaching on academic and literary English for international students and native speakers.
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.
