About James Bartley

James has been working as a freelance technical editor since October 2015. On a mission to turn knitting & crochet patterns into rock stars, he works with independent designers and magazines to get every detail right. When your technical documentation is the product you are selling, or a key feature of that product, then the user experience is key and James is always focused on the user in his work.

After finding like-minded people in the Tech Comms world, James has been adapting everyone else’s ideas to his work, and is keen to give back. He hopes to share some insights from his corner of our shared domain; or at least tell an interesting story about his work.
