Hello, I’m Lewis

I’m a freelance writer and copy-editor based in the north-east of England. I specialise in video games, technology, science and films.

I write about video games

I’ve written feature articles, reviews and previews for a range of leading video-game websites and magazines, including PC Gamer, EDGE, Kotaku UK, Eurogamer, GamesRadar+, Rock Paper Shotgun and Retro Gamer. I’ve also written advertorials and sponsored content for GAME and the Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt exhibition at the V&A Museum. Take a look at my video-game portfolio here.

I write marketing content

I’ve created a wide range of content for numerous diverse brands, from features to social media posts. I’ve been working with Skyscanner since 2014 to create sponsored features, flight-deal round-ups and other content to be featured in their weekly newsletter, as well as refreshing old articles to improve SEO and impact. I’ve also written articles for Tesco Bank, Editions Financial, IBM, Insight, Medtronic and Bouncepad, among many others. I’m pretty versatile! Head this way to see my portfolio of marketing content.

I copy-edit science journals, books and websites

I’m a scientific copy-editor with more than ten years of experience, and I’m a professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading. Before going freelance in 2013, I was the Copy Editing Manager for the Nature Reviews journals. I provide freelance copy-editing services for New Scientist and Nature, and I’ve also copy-edited several books for Wiley and other clients. In addition, I provide website and article copy-editing services for individual clients and companies like Aman, the luxury travel firm. Look over here to see my copy-editing portfolio.

I write blogs and record podcasts

I’m a keen film fan, and I co-host a regular movie podcast, 101 Films You Should Have Seen… Probably, which has had more than 900,000 downloads. I’m also behind two video-game blogs, A Most Agreeable Pastime and 101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better, which between them have been viewed more than 400,000 times. Finally, I documented the two years I spent living in rural Japan on the blog An Englishman in Nyu-Gun.
