Julian Brouwer: Course tutor
Writer | Columnist | Journalist | Editor
UK national newspapers | UK national magazines | New York magazines
I am a journalist, writer and proofreader with over 25 years’ experience, and I am a tutor on CMP’s proofreading, music journalism and creative writing courses.
I started out on local newspapers and quickly moved on to some of Britain’s top national papers.
My writing has taken me all around the world and to New York, where I worked for some of America’s top publications and also found time to pen a daily column for the Daily Express.
I worked as a proofreader for a group of newspapers and a host of other London-based organisations, so I am used to finding errors that even eagle-eyed subeditors miss.
As well as working as a proofreader, I run a news agency called London News Service which supplies news and features to national papers. I previously ran a similar agency called Manhattan News, which supplied American stories to Britain.
I’m an avid music fan, and an experienced reviewer. I had my own music column that was syndicated across local newspapers in London, and have written about everything from the Rolling Stones to local pub gigs.
I have written a string of short stories and am currently working on my first full-length book “Bi-polar Hack” which will be out next year.
