Freelance editor and writer


Simon is establishing a career as an editor and freelance writer. From early 2016 he has been supporting the forum by writing brief reports to capture the discussion from each forum meeting and highlight the key points of interest.

Simon originally studied English and he has since specialised in Medieval Icelandic studies in Reykjavik and Cambridge. His research explores the role of prophecy as a literary device in the Icelandic Sagas. He also provides editing support for academic work in a range of topics including engineering, social sciences, history and film.
