WRITER’S SURGERY

I’m not really a doctor, but I can help act as a midwife for your book babies.

I’ve just recently signed up to be a mentor for the Queensland Writers Centre as part of their Writer’s Surgery program.

I’ve been teaching creative writing for over a decade now and writing in earnest since 2002, so I’ve got plenty of tricks up my sleeve to help make your story the very best it can be.

Here’s a testimonial from writer Azra Algaic, author of Not Like My Mother.

“Edwina Shaw is the kind of editor you hope to find: caring and nurturing, but also frank and bold. She challenges you on structure and logic, helping you to create a tighter, cleaner plot, while also honing in on those grammatical oversights and inevitable typos. Her technical and craft knowledge result in a holistic and detailed assessment of your manuscript that leaves you inspired to tackle that dreaded rewrite.”

For this program I’ll only be looking at the first 20 pages, but I can certainly put you on the right track and help you to find your way forward from there.

If you’re interested please contact QWC at the Writer’s Surgery¬†and book in for a consultation.

Happy writing!
