Nancy Duin

Nancy Duin - Editor

London

Great experience as a freelance copywriter, editor and content strategist for range of clients, mainly for web but also for print.

Overview

Originally from the US, I’ve spent the majority of my working life in the UK, starting as a non-fiction commissioning editor in book publishing. Going freelance, I initially worked for publishers, but was soon asked to be an editorial consultant for Channel 4 Television, part of a team that produced ‘back-up’ for television programmes – first, in print, then online. In addition, I was editor of the Channel 4 History website for seven years.

More recently, I’ve been a freelance contractor for the (UK) Department for International Development, and deputy managing editor for BeGrand.net – a government-funded website for grandparents. I’ve also done quite a bit of copywriting for the English Heritage website.

In addition, I teach two courses, which I co-created, on writing and editing for the web – one for the Publishing Training Centre and the other for the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. I am an advanced member of the latter and was its internet director for eight years. I’ve recently expanded my teaching to include half-day seminars for the University of the Arts London (in-house) and Kingston University.

On a personal level, I’m increasingly involved with the local community in my part of west London. Previously I was on the executive of the Acton Business Forum, and I event-managed the Acton Christmas Fair. I’m currently a trustee of the Acton Community Forum.
