Editing and Mentoring

I offer a bespoke editing and mentoring service for anyone – whether you are working on your first or fifteenth draft.

Initially, I will look at your manuscript with a reader’s eye, first and foremost telling you how I respond to it instinctively as a story. Then I’ll put on my editor’s hat and consider it in the whole – structurally; plot-wise; and in terms of your characters and motivations. I will provide you with comments on the manuscript and a full report where I will go into my thoughts and editorial advice in more detail.

I have taught creative writing for many years – as part of The Singapore Writers’ Group (which I founded); in schools; prisons; and at La Salle College of the Arts in Singapore. I love the process of editing and shaping a story into a better whole. I also love working with first-time authors who are new to the world of finding an agent and getting published.

If you would like me to work on your manuscript, do get in touch for more information and my fee structure.
