Titles I’ve worked on as editor have been shortlisted for the Commonwealth Book Prize and the £30,000 Dylan Thomas Prize. John Harrison’s Forgotten Footprints was winner in the creative non-fiction category for Wales Book of the Year; the book subsequently won the Best Narrative Travel Book from the British Guild of Travel Writers. Jemma L. King was shortlisted for Wales Book of the Year 2014 for The Shape of a Forest (poetry). Rachel Trezise’s Cosmic Latte was shortlisted for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2014 and went on to win the Readers’ Prize. I’ve worked with debut authors, as well as established authors some way into their careers. My editorial style is always candid, inspirational, and dedicated to helping authors fully realize their vision. If you’re a publisher looking for a freelancer to work on creative editing, I am happy to hear from you. You can contact me at kathrynlouisegray [@] hotmail.com. My rates are reasonable.
If you’re a poet looking for creative development and someone to assist with troubleshooting individual poems and/or work on developing a manuscript for publication, I can also help – email as above.
