My name is Sam Bennett and I’m the face behind Indigo Proofreading


I am fascinated by words and how we can use them to communicate our ideas, emotions and values.

I have 11 years experience as a freelance proofreader and editor, working with academic and business clients. In 2015 I decided to go it alone and set up my own company. I currently split my time between Indigo and teaching at the Faculty of English at Adam Mickiewicz University,where I am an Assistant Professor . I am also the Assistant Editor of the Journal of Language & Politics.

I hold a PhD in English Linguistics from Adam Mickiewicz University.

My academic work has been published by leading journals and publishing houses. I have also written a number of articles for major news and comment outlets such as New Statesman in the UK and Krytyka Polityczna in Poland.

Originally from the UK, I have lived, worked and studied in Ukraine, Spain, Israel, and now Poland.

I have a background in NGO work and a trustee of Migrant Info Point in Poznań.
