Freelance Commissions


Hi. I'm Howard David Ingham. I'm a freelance writer, editor, educator and critic. I live in Swansea, UK.

Curriculum Vitae

In 2002 I achieved MPhil Classics from the University of Wales Swansea (now just Swansea University). I've got a full clean driving licence and a current enhanced DBS certificate.

This is an "edited highlights" CV. More detail and examples of work are available on request.

Arts: 
  • I have been a regular performer in the local area. I've read and performed at Chapter Arts Cardiff and the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea as part of larger events.
  • I was one of the Bridging the Gaps Artists in Residence at Swansea University (with Fern Thomas) in 2012-13. 
Writing and Editorial: 
  • Criticism and nonfiction: I have written many books and monographs, both for myself and and for clients. My book We Don't Go Back: A Watcher's Guide to Folk Horror was nominated for a 2018 Bram Stoker Award in the nonfiction category. 
  • Games: I have about 50 credits in tabletop role-playing game products, most recently these have been for Green Ronin, including Modern AGE and Threefold. My work for Call of Cthulhu got me two citations in the Cthulhu Mythos Encyclopedia. I had many credits for White Wolf, some of which were significant contributions to award-winning publications.
  • Magazines: I have contributed reportage to the Big Issue and wrote a column for online magazine Ship of Fools.
  • Public Sector: I was part of the final pass editing team for the 2013 Francis Inquiry into the Staffordshire Hospitals via Domarn for HM Department of Health. 
  • Third Sector: I was the editor of SCM's Movement magazine (2007-2010), and an editor and primary contributor to the 2007 resource Reading the Bible.  

Rate Card

I'm open to commissions right now. These are my rates. I've been hired as an illustrator before now, but I'm not taking illustration commissions at the moment.  
  • Writing (magazine articles, blogs, book chapters): £150 per 1000 words.
  • Writing and research (briefings or press releases): from £200 per 500 words.
  • Print design, page make-up: £25/hour.  
  • Editing and proofreading, general and academic: £25/hour
  • Performance or public speaking: by negotiation, usually £100-200 an evening.
  • Translation of Latin texts (into English): £25-40/hour.

These fees are based upon the London Freelance Association Fees Bible, adjusted for location and the market.

Comment moderation is on because harassment and frankly this is why you can't have nice things.
