As a journalist, Daniel told clear and lively stories, and learned the importance of structural editing. He's since worked as a proof-reader and copy-editor, developing articles, essays and books with other writers. He's also written and published a memoir with Zero Books. 


Daniel likes sharing his skills to help ideas reach wider audiences. Whatever your level of experience, fresh perspectives can help. Together, you'll define clear priorities and sharpen your focus.

You'll get insightful and honest suggestions, engaging closely with your work and what you want it to achieve. Depending on how much you've written, and how much assistance you require, this can range from a brief exchange of emails to months of interaction.

Rates for these services vary, depending on circumstances. To discuss a proposal, contact Daniel. He's also interested in other collaborative ventures, from ghost-writing books to drafting speeches. In general, he aims to promote constructive change.

Of those who helped me formulate and write the book none did more than Daniel Simpson. His passion, astute brain and exacting logic all made my work more thorough, better-argued and more coherent than it would otherwise have been.
