Louise Tondeur - Editor

Louise Tondeur writes fiction, poetry, plays and nonfiction and has supported countless numbers of writers with both written and verbal feedback. Before doing a Creative Writing MA at The University of East Anglia, she trained as a Drama teacher and brings her knowledge of the theatre into her conversations with emerging writers. In the noughties, she published two novels with Headline Review called The Water’s Edge and The Haven Home for Delinquent Girls, then she did a PhD at the Reading University, started a family, and became a Creative Writing lecturer, while publishing mainly poetry and nonfiction. In 2017, she left her full-time job to focus on writing. Her short story collection, Unusual Places, came out in 2018 and she is currently working on a series of crime novels set in Norfolk / Suffolk border country where her grandparents lived for 40 years. Louise now lives near Brighton with her wife and son and two black cats and teaches on the Open University’s Creative Writing MA. She blogs at: www.louisetondeur.co.uk

WHAT LOUISE SAYS ABOUT EDITING

I have a good eye for the big picture and I’m excellent at problem solving – in fact I love it! What I most enjoy about helping writers with their manuscripts is finding ways to help them make their books as good as they can be. I’ve worked with complete beginners as well as Undergraduates and Masters students and I’m able to offer book reports, copy editing, line edits and developmental work. I believe that editorial reports are best when they are specific. I like to start by asking the writer what they most want to get out of the experience and to tailor my reports so they are aimed at addressing exactly what’s required. As a university lecturer, I have been helping writers for the last twenty years and I can’t wait to help even more writers make their manuscripts shine – and to get their books out into the world.
