Why should you learn about fiction editing with me?
I've line edited or proofread hundreds of novels published by mainstream presses and independent authors. But practice isn't enough ... I continue to study the craft of commercial-fiction writing and editing.
I write fiction too – short stories and flash – and have been shortlisted for the CWA's Margery Allingham Short Story Competition, the Bookseller's Future Fiction competition, and the Noirwich Crime Writing Festival's flash-fiction competition.
My approach to teaching
My teaching approach is problem/solution based. Yes, fiction editing is subjective and nuanced, but there’s still room for practical analysis that unpicks a novel’s vulnerabilities and considers the range of literary tools available to improve what’s on the page.
