Creative and critical writer and editor offering editing and proofreading for novels and short fiction.

Ambassador

We host the best tutors. Quality of their profile, experience in their field. Ross will be happy to arrange your first Reading lesson.

About the lesson

I offer editing and proofreading for prose works of fiction in any genre, though fantasy and short fiction are my specialities, having been the focus of my undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations respectively. I edit and annotate the writer's work, and then provide feedback in a workshop. Feedback is inclusive of content, format and structure editing, as well as grammar, spelling and punctuation line-editing.

If the writer lives too far to make a face to face session practicable, the option for feedback to be sent electronically is available. Zoom/Skype/Microsoft Teams workshops are also available.

The first workshop may need to be an assessment of the writer's editing/proofreading requirements.

Feedback workshops 45-60 minutes. Workshop cost includes any required editing outside of the workshop. Sometimes, for larger projects, a daily rate of £250 is more suitable.

About Ross

I am a creative and critical writer and editor at the University of Gloucestershire (BA, MA). From 2022-2025 I will be undertaking a practice-led Creative Writing PhD at York St John's University. Alongside running my own writing, editing and private tutoring business, Ross Turner Academics, I founded and am the editor-in-chief of Superlative, The Short Story Literary Journal, which develops and publishes new and aspiring writers.

As a professional member of The National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE), I attend regular writing conferences and have access to the latest writing in education materials.

Additionally, I am regularly published in journals, magazines and ezines, online and in print, and provide editing services for others published in the same and similar forums.

I enjoy educating; I guest lecture on Creative Writing Courses at several colleges and universities and, amongst other qualifications listed below, have Level 5 TEFL and Level 4 Education & Training qualifications.
