Julian Brouwer: Course tutor

Julian BrouwerWriter | Columnist | Journalist | Editor

UK national newspapers | UK national magazines | New York magazines

I am a journalist and proofreader with 25 years’ experience, and I am a tutor on CMP’s proofreading, music journalism and music blogging courses.

I started out on local newspapers and quickly moved on to some of Britain’s top national papers.

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 successful news agency called Manhattan News, which supplies US-based news and features to national papers in the UK.

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’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.
