Editorial & Manuscript Services

Luke’s feedback is affirmative, precise and practical. I’ve always found that he sees what the work is trying to do, rather than what he’d do with it


I work in both poetry and prose (with a specialism in MG & YA) and offer a variety of services.

  • Close readings of single poems right up to full collection manuscripts.
  • Support with development or next steps at any stage of your first draft.
  • Honing opening chapters and putting together a submissions package.
  • Full manuscript reports, identifying areas of strength and pointers for development.

Rates start from £50.

Each project is different, so please get in touch for a quote and let me know the kind of service you’re looking for, as well as a brief outline of your project and its wordcount, and we’ll work from there.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sharing your manuscript for detailed feedback can be a daunting experience but it couldn’t have been in better hands with Luke. His feedback is measured, kind and respectful but most importantly useful. The level of time and detail that Luke put into reading and commenting on my manuscript was incredible. Now I feel ready to renew my editing process and am full of new ideas and energy to make my book the very best that it can be.
