About Me

Hi, I’m Tom Foskett.

I’m a freelance editor, technical writer and writing coach currently living in West Sussex, UK.

Before setting up Clearer Content, I spent almost a decade with a large UK company as a specialist in business systems and processes. In that time, I saw how many problems were caused by poor communication.

Topics that should have been simple were often ruined by a lack of organisation, over-complication and too much business jargon. Instead of helping share information and enable good decision making, reports were treated as a necessary but unpleasant chore both by their writers and by the people reading them.

Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way. Clear, effective business writing can (and should) be an incredibly powerful tool. Sometimes all you need is a fresh pair of eyes, or someone who can help translate your ideas into words in a way that captures what you really mean.

That’s where I come in. As a technical writer and editor, I’ll work with you to make sure your written content is as clear and effective as possible. As a writing coach, I offer courses to help you and your colleagues become better business writers. Together, we can remove the risk of poor communication.

I aim to deliver a first class service, and because of that I take my professional development seriously. On top of a degree in English from the University of Nottingham, I’m a trained member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), the UK’s professional editing organisation. I’m also a technical expert with extensive experience in Excel VBA, PHP and SQL.

Outside of work I’m a keen sailor, gamer, and amateur programmer, with a passion for travel and world history.
