Item 70: manuscript & copy-edit by Jenni Hill (Solaris Books)

The highest bidder will receive the opportunity to have Jenni Hill, editor at Solaris Books edit your work.

Jenni has worked with writers such as Al Ewing, Ian Whates, Eric Brown, Gail Z. Martin, Emily Gee, Chuck Wendig and Paul Kearney. She’s spoken at conventions on how to get into the industry, and has experience editing comics and short stories as well as novels. She started her career at Solaris after completing her English degree at Oxford University, and work experience at 2000 AD comics.

I’ll edit a manuscript of up to 10,000 words in length. Could be the first few chapters of your novel, a short story collection, a novella, it’s up to you.

If it’s your novel and you include the pitch and story/chapter summary, I’ll read that too, provide a critique, give you some advice about where to submit it and how to give your work the best possible chance of being published.

My specialities are science fiction, fantasy and horror fiction, but I know quite a bit about the Young Adult fiction and comics markets too, and would be happy to read in any genre.

This is a fantastic opportunity for any budding writer to have a professional editor working for a commercial publishing house look closely at your work and help to polish and shape your writing.

Minimum bid: £10.00
