Titles

As a full time freelance writer, much of the work that I do is commissioned by a range of titles. On this page, you can find links to some of the most significant ones from which content also appears on this site. For details of other people I’ve worked for, check my main business web site, www.nigelwhitfield.com.

Computer Active

One of the UK’s biggest selling computer magazines, I’ve worked for this fortnightly title off and on since a couple of months after it launched, including two stints manning the newsdesk. www.computeractive.co.uk

Computer Active Ultimate Guides

The Ultimate Guides are a spin-off from ComputerActive, a series of ‘one shots’ where each issue focusses on a single topic, like going digital, or making your PC last longer. I’m one of two series editors, which means I plan, edit, and write parts of half the issues each year. www.caultimateguide.co.uk

Personal Computer World

The oldest monthly computer magazine in the UK, cruelly shut in 2009. I started writing for it in 1995, having read it – and had a program listing published – as a teenager. As well as writing, I also edited sections of the magazine, including the Hands On pages, and stints looking after reviews as well. Though closed, the website still lives on, reproducing material from other titles owned by the same company. www.pcw.co.uk

Register Hardware

An offshoot of The Register, this site carries plenty of reviews and some other feature material that I’ve written, as well as plenty of other stuff too – a must for anyone into gadgets. www.reghardware.co.uk
