Editing

Rachel Grosvenor: Author, Coach & Editor

Editing

As a Doctor of Creative Writing, I have undertaken various editing courses and have extensive experience in editing.

I have helped authors write and perfect their novels, gain publishing deals, receive full manuscript requests from agents, and be accepted into academic writing programmes.

You’re in the right place if you’re looking for a professional editor who uses strengths-based feedback. 

I can offer developmental editing, help with query packages, chapter reviews and more, so book in for a free chat with me today about how I can help you with your work.

I love discovering new fiction and helping writers polish up their work.

Kind words from the writers I've coached

If you’re ready for an editor, get in touch.

You can put down a 10% deposit to book me for a time period, too, so that you know your editing package is on its way and waiting for you.

The best thing to do is book a Discovery Call to tell me all about your novel.

I love discovering new fiction and helping writer’s polish up their work.

Here's what Jenn had to say:

Working with Rachel over the last three months has given me many things, but to put it succinctly:

I now have a flashlight to help guide me along the path to publishing whereas before I couldn’t see past my nose, all thanks to her coaching me how to plan.

Rachel’s brainstorming and researching coaching, as well as encouragement, helped me in taking something from initial idea to full concept.

Having someone who is a bit further along the path than me hold space and coach me through my writing concerns meant I felt supported and guided without feeling like an amateur.

-Jenn
