About Me

Hey, it’s good to have you here.

My name is Jonathon Hawkins. At 22 years old, I’ve just finished studying Philosophy at the University of Nottingham, and I’m currently navigating the world as a Freelance Writer.

I live in a small town just outside of Worcester (UK) with my family. In my spare time: I read, play guitar, binge Netflix shows, and drink (lots of ) coffee.

I’m a self-identified Philosopher. And here on Medium, I aim to promote the practical benefits of Philosophy in an accessible way to a mainstream audience. Because of that, you can expect me to explore the sorts of questions we all asked as children:

  • What does it all mean?
  • How can I make the most of my time on Earth?
  • What happens after death?
  • What makes something right or wrong?
  • What makes an argument credible or sound?

Are topics that motivate, and underly every article I write on my profile.

Having recently left academia, you can expect every piece I publish to be well researched, with solid foundations in reliable evidence from scholars & thinkers from around the world.

Outside of my pursuit of Philosophy, I also explore and write about a variety of other themes, including:

  • Using my academic research and knowledge to write about Psychology.
  • Using and applying the core lessons of Philosophy to the realm of Self-Improvement.
  • Applying and sharing my experiences about Writing, Freelancing and Marketing to help others on this platform improve.

Editorial Duties

During my time on Medium, I’ve been fortunate enough to be on the team for a few publications. These include:

  • Owner and managing editor of The Apeiron Blog (Topic: Philosophy).
  • Former submissions manager for Mind Cafe (May 2020-January 2021)(Topic: Self-Improvement.)

These projects have led me to engage more with all the amazing writers on this platform. For writers of these publications, I offer editorial support, advice, and copy-editing on successful submissions.

Information on how to inquire or apply to them can be found on their submissions pages.


I’ve teamed up with The Post-Grad Survival Guide to deliver you “From Graduate to Freelancer” an ongoing series about graduating amidst a pandemic, life after University, and working as a freelancer.


Life’s short. Because of that, I try my best to meet as many people as I possibly can. I love hearing other people's stories and learning about their journey. If you want to, you can chat with me or arrange a call by emailing — jonhawkinswriting(at)gmail(dot)com

You can also find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin.

If none of those suit, just reply to this story and I’ll reach out.

Curated Collections

Updated February 23rd 2021

I stand by every article I write and put out. But occasionally, I write an article that I’m more proud of than any other. Maybe I spend weeks researching the topic. Or perhaps it’s on a topic that is personal to me, and is written from the heart.

These are those pieces, by category.
