The next Bothersome Words Writing Clinic will run in 2023. Dates TBA
Editorial consultations now available. Ask me anything from general editing and writing queries to specific manuscript quandaries.
Getting a professional review can be an important stage of your manuscript development. An assessment by Bothersome Words will give you honest feedback that will help you take your manuscript to the next stage.
Bothersome Words provides professional editing services to both trade publishers and private clients, including writers who are just starting out, those who are developing their work for submission, and independent authors planning to self-publish.
If you need someone to cover your story, Bothersome Words can draw on over 12 years of experience writing magazine features, business articles, marketing campaigns and blogs to fit the right words to your message.
Do you need a bit more help to push your manuscript to the next stage? A mentorship or book coach could help. Limited spots are available.
