WHAT EMILY SAYS ABOUT EDITING
Nothing excites me more than finding a new and refreshing literary voice and seeing a manuscript come to life! I pride myself on clear, open communication, careful attention to detail and supportive team work. As a freelance editor, my role is also to be a sounding board for the client’s ideas, to support writers through the challenges of editing their manuscripts ready for submission or publication, and to offer insider knowledge of the publishing industry. It is my aim to help budding authors reach their goal, whatever that may be.
I love upmarket/book club fiction, literary fiction and narrative non-fiction, such as that from Dolly Alderton, Joanna Cannon, Elizabeth Day, Gavin Extence, Bernadine Evaristo, Jonathon Franzen, Matt Haig, Sally Rooney and Elizabeth Strout. I also love women’s fiction that tugs on the heart strings such as Rowan Coleman or Rosie Walsh. I enjoy reading about human resilience and strength in times of crisis, and shrewd observation of the human condition. I am very happy to do developmental editing, line editing, copyediting and mentoring if that is something the client is interested in.
