Writing Coaching / Editing

Beyond Words Literary Agency is committed to helping new authors develop their skills and their manuscripts. Through our coaching and editing service, we hope to inspire, educate and motivate writers of all genres to bring out the story within, in a manner that is enjoyable to read and commercially viable. 

 

The Process.

 

Coaching and editing sessions are run by Fiona Johnson and can be in-person, or via zoom/skype. Authors email their manuscript to us, and we will then provide a quotation based on the amount of work required on each manuscript. Your manuscript may already have a completed first draft, it might only be a few chapters so far and you may not have even started yet! Either way, we would love to help you bring it to life, polish it, and most importantly, teach you the skills to produce your own amazing works in the future.

 

  • Please note: This service runs separate to the agency, and if you employ Beyond Words to edit and coach you, there is no obligation to sign with us as an author. Similarly, we are under no obligation and cannot guarantee that we would subsequently take on your manuscript as your agent.

Structural Editing

 

Editing can make or break a manuscript, and before you send any work to a publisher, it should be edited by a professional. 

 

We will read the entire manuscript, then go back through and make suggestions on plot, structure, themes, characterisation, links to current topics, marketability and more. We will also fix spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors along the way.

 

You can engage us to edit the whole manuscript at once, or chapter by chapter. Once we have edited the text, we schedule a zoom meeting with you to discuss the suggestions. In the end, you will have a polished manuscript, ready for submission to publishers.

Manuscript Appraisal

 

Have you started writing a manuscript but are not sure if you should continue?

Do you need guidance on where to go next?

Do you need advice on your writing style, narrative arch, plot, your first three chapters (so important!), correct grammar and punctuation or anything else?

 

Then a 30-minute manuscript appraisal session could be perfect for you.

 

Send us a 2500-word sample of your work in a word document (size 12 font and double -spaced), plus a synopsis and bio.

We will read your sample, then schedule a Zoom meeting to discuss it with you. You will also receive written feedback for later reference.

Testimonials...

Working with Fiona to edit my junior fiction manuscript was a terrific experience. As I was changing genres as an author, I found her structural edit incredibly helpful in clarifying the audience and shaping the manuscript to reflect this. Fiona is generous with her time and talks through her ideas, ensuring the best result can be achieved throughout the editing process. Fiona has helped me to bring out the best in my story and I highly recommend her services to any writer needing editorial support.
