Welcome My name is Kate Priestman and I’m a freelance writer and proof-editor, based in the UK. I specialise in nature and ecology, with a general interest in the countryside and rural life. In addition to writing and proof-editing, I am also a wildlife artist. I began my career as a professional ecologist, which I have pursued for over eighteen years, setting up my own business in 2012. This enabled me to bring my other passions of writing, proof-editing and art to the fore. I am co-founder, writer and editor of Inside Ecology magazine – a leading online magazine for ecologists, conservationists and wildlife professionals. You can find out more about my writing services HERE and my proofreading/proof-editing service HERE.
