When a writer gets too close to a piece of work, it can be invaluable to see it again through a fresh, sensitive and critical eye.

 

I offer an editorial reading service, providing constructive feedback on what is and isn’t working in a manuscript and, most importantly, why. My report will cover elements of character, style, structure, plot and setting.

 

I’ve worked with award winning authors, as well as writers at the start of their careers who have gone on to secure offers of representation from agents.

With a distinction in the MA in Creative Writing from Brunel University, a degree in English and Related Literature from York University and several years' experience as a manuscript consultant, I have developed a keen interest in the inner workings of the novel, defining what a writer is looking to achieve and what steps might help them to realise their vision.

 

A Third Eye provides a full manuscript report at a competitive rate with a fast turnaround. This includes the opportunity for follow-up questions. I also undertake submission appraisals, including covering letter and synopsis. I offer feedback on scripts too and am Script Consultant for Park the Bus.
