Who we are

wordsandwork is led by Duncan McCorquodale. With over 30 years of professional experience across academia, publishing, exhibition curation and design, and hundreds of publishing and exhibition projects to his credit, Duncan brings an expansive expertise to wordsandwork’s offering.


What sets us apart from our competitors is our hands-on approach to working with each of our clients. Our extensive expertise—which includes writing, editing, proofreading, indexing, picture research, interviews and transcription, curation and project management—has made us a valued partner in the delivery of content for our clients, and their stakeholders, colleagues and peers.


wordsandworks network enables us to draw down on professional skill sets across book, magazine and digital publishing, design, journalism and academia. It is the insights and experience we are able to bring to a project from these areas that are at the heart of our offer.

A good editor is someone who cares a little less about the authors needs than the reader’s.
