Paul Roberts - Editor

Paul Roberts is a writer and business consultant with a First Class Honours Degree in Creative Writing and Children’s Literature.

His first book was published by The Economist in 2007 and is now in its second edition with a third on the way. He has had several further books published by Kogan Page, forming part of their hugely influential ‘Business Success’ series. Paul’s latest non-fiction book will be published shortly by Routledge in their ‘Absolute Essentials’ series, causing Paul to realise, if ever proof was needed, that it is far harder to write a short book than a long one.

Paul writes frequently for magazines and professional publications. He has also written for television. He has completed two novels and is in want of an agent. As a reviewer, editor and teacher of creative writing, he has supported developing writers for many years. Paul is presently studying for his Master’s degree in Creative Writing.

WHAT PAUL SAYS ABOUT EDITING

I adore working with aspiring writers, sharing an interest in the power and beauty of the written word. Over the years, I’ve discovered how much there is to learn from each other. I’ve been amazed by the stories, knowledge and insight that Jericho clients have offered for review. I’ve always been delighted to receive a new submission, knowing how personal, powerful and precious every work must be to its owner.

I have seen how it is possible for an enthusiastic and open writer to transform their work as a result of a Jericho review, going on to receive plaudits from others, positive responses from agents and publishers, and the sheer personal pleasure that comes from doing something well.

I think it is especially important to bring clarity into our writing. This is especially true when writing creative non-fiction as it is often the case that the work may be educational. It is so easy for a reader to become disengaged if the writer is unable to keep their attention. Good writing can make even the dullest of texts engaging.

I have a particular interest in supporting writers who are producing autobiographies, memoirs, travelogues, business and management textbooks, and self-help books.
