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

Methodology

I offer editing and proofreading for prose works of fiction in any genre, though fantasy is my speciality, having been the focus of my undergraduate dissertation (see CV below). 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 £150 is more suitable.

Experience

I am a creative and critical writer and editor at the University of Gloucestershire (BA, MA). I founded and co-edit Superlative, The Short Story Literary Journal, which develops and publishes new and aspiring writers.

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

I am also 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 other colleges and have a level 4 education and training teaching qualification awarded by Edexcel.

Ross has been incredibly helpful and professional. I asked for his help because, even though I am a published author, I have been suffering from writer's block for several years.
