- Are you struggling with your short story?
- Has your synopsis sizzled out half-way?
- Not sure which markets to target?
- Perhaps you’d just like someone to check your script through
As a freelance writer, I’ve written for all sorts of publications and undertaken all sorts of writing jobs from copywriting, to short stories, to humorous articles, to readers’ letters, to books. I learned my craft many years ago through The Writers Bureau and once I’d become an established writer, I joined them as a tutor so I could motivate and help other fledgling writers to become published.
I love helping others – as much as I love writing myself. So, a short while ago, I started my own Editing and Advice Service. We all need that helping hand sometimes, so if you think I can help you, whether it’s a critique of your work you’re after, an edit, some advice about a market – in fact, anything and everything, please get in touch and I’ll try and help you.
You can contact me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
Writer, Helen Gaen, has used the service for her short stories and had the following to say:
“I sent Esther both some published and unpublished work for critique and was amazed at how astute and helpful her comments were. I felt the service represented fantastic value for money, was professional, prompt and personalised to my needs. I will definitely use this service again and would strongly recommend it to others.”
Author, Margaret Benison, used the service for her novel and wanted to share her experience:
“Having Esther as your editor doesn’t only mean that your book will be thoroughly polished and restructured, it also means that you will realize your strengths and weaknesses as a writer and hopefully become a better writer because of it. Esther was my creative writing instructor a few years ago and I managed to publish every short story she helped me edit back then. I only hope she had her lucky-charm switch on when she edited my novel.”
