Board Game and Tabletop Editing Services

Hi! My name is Simon and I help tabletop game creators write and refine the text for their rulebooks, board game components, websites, Kickstarter campaigns, email newsletters, social media posts and more. I aim to make it clear, concise, accurate, easy to understand, and entertaining.

Large game publishers often have dedicated in-house writers, editors and proofreaders. However, for independent game creators running Kickstarters and the like, these tasks can often fall to people who would rather spend their time doing something else.

I can help you with that.

I’m here to save you from having to re-read your own rulebook until you can’t face it anymore. I’m here to double-check your Kickstarter campaigns and email updates so you don’t have to. I’m here to take writing, editing, and proofreading tasks off your plate, so that you’re free to channel your creative energy into designing and making your game.

Feel free to get in touch using the contact form, or read on for more information first.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
