James Crisp. Freelance journalist in Brussels.

Hire me for journalism, moderation, and sparkling copy

Experienced freelance journalist for hire

I am an experienced British journalist based in Brussels, and available for freelance journalism, writing, editing, media training and moderation.

See my LinkedIn page for my CV and follow me on Twitter @JamesCrisp6. Call me on 0032 477536654. Email me on jamescrisp@outlook.com.

I am political editor at EurActiv.com. I cover EU and UK politics, energy and the environment, financial services, trade and more. I also write the daily newsletter The Brief.

If you are looking for sharp, accurate and clear copy by a native speaker, or if you need work checked, an interview conducted or event covered, I can help.

If you want a lively, engaging, insightful moderator for your panel debate, get in touch. I’ve moderated for companies such as Aviva, Pepsico, and GE Capital, for institutions including the LSE and the European Ombudsman, and at events such as the European Business Summit.

I was financial services correspondent for MLex Market Intelligence, a global news agency specialising in regulatory risk. Prior to that, I worked for national and local newspapers in the UK.

I have worked for The Sun, New Statesman, The Times, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, Daily Star Sunday, Sport Newspapers, and Dow Jones’ Private Equity News and Financial News. My stories have also appeared in La Tribune and Der Tagesspiegel.

I’ve discussed EU affairs on BBC radio, RTE Drivetime, ITV news and other broadcasters.

Previously, I was media manager at the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (now InvestEurope). I edited the website and was responsible for press communications and social media.

This blog is intended to showcase my work. You can also find me on Flickr, SoundCloud, Vine, Facebook, and YouTube.
