I do occasional freelance work for editorial consultancies. These team up experienced authors with new writers to give them detailed, honest, professional feedback on their work. With this, the new writer can submit the best possible manuscript they are capable of to agents and publishers.
If you are a writer in any genre looking to get published, I would strongly recommend looking at the consultancies below and contacting them with a view to having an editorial report or a course of mentoring in the near future.
It was fabulous for us to find a writer who could enable children to see the joy writers find in writing - and who could, at the same time, share some of the techniques used to enthral an audience. It was a very successful day for all of us.
