Stand Corrected Editing
Dear fellow writer,
Many writers worldwide send their manuscripts to agents in the hope of representation, but just as many face countless rejections and are left without the knowledge of what is going wrong. So, in the cosy autumn of 2019, I launched Stand Corrected Editing to provide writers with editorial feedback and advice on how to prepare for submission or self-publication.
Most editorial businesses and literary consultancies have a large team of editors, but at the moment, it's just me providing book editing services to as many writers as I can.
Since childhood, I have been fascinated with stories, so once I completed my degree at Bournemouth University, I decided to become a professional book editor in the UK and offer my own manuscript editing services.
My degree has broadened my knowledge of how novels should be structured and written; what makes a good story; how to sell yourself to agents and publishers; and how to edit a draft into a masterpiece. I have also completed diploma courses in Creative Writing, Novel Writing, and Proofreading & Editing.
In 2019, I published Two Birds with One Stone, a short tale that centres around Greek mythology. I am currently in the middle of writing a children's fantasy series and an Arthurian adventure!
So, if you'd like to work with me as your book editor at Stand Corrected Editing, feel free to get in touch!
