We are a small professional organization which provides a support service for aspiring writers from a team of experienced readers. We offer practical help with work in progress, and comprehensive editing at all levels when your work is ready for submission or publication.
All our readers are working writers, and each client receives a thorough, personal service tailored to individual needs. A specialist reader will give you an individual critique: feedback on any piece of short or extended writing: anything from a haiku to a 600-page blockbuster.
We're delighted to look at
- Fiction of all lengths: novels or novellas, short stories for magazines or competitions; and in any genre: crime, science fiction, humour, romance, literary;
- Factual writing: magazine features or full-length non-fiction books;
- Drama: scripts for stage plays, radio or TV.
We offer one-off package deals for help with a single piece of work, or for longer pieces, ongoing support as the work progresses.
We can't teach you to be a writer; no one can.
We can, if you have the potential and ambition, help you develop and hone skills you already possess. When appropriate, we will offer tips, a few tricks of the trade, and ultimately market advice, all on a one-to-one basis.
We'll also give you positive encouragement to sit down and get the words on to the page.
Mainly it's up to you. You do the writing; we can point the way.
