The next meeting of Group 2012 will be held on Wednesday 20 June at Blackwell’s Bookshop, Broad Street at 7pm.
We are very lucky to have a talk by screenwriter Dr Pauline Kiernan who is is an award-winning playwright, commissioned screenwriter and distinguished Shakespeare scholar. She has been a literary and screenplay consultant for six years, is a visiting tutor in creative writing at Oxford University, and is the author of several books on screenwriting:
After the talk we will help with any aspect of dialogue, be it for a screenplay, a novel or a work of non fiction. Do come armed with questions if you are particularly interested in screenwriting or improving your dialogue in general, or send them to us beforehand. You might even like to read out a passage of dialogue from your work for some friendly feedback.
Non-members are always welcome, but for non-members there will be a small entry fee: details in the About Group 2012 page.
I started The Oxford Editors in 2007 to help writers at every stage and in every genre. We have a strong academic tradition as well as working with writers of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We also help children's writers, playwrights, screen writers and business writers.
We offer a wide set of services for writers from mentoring, manuscript assessment, copy editing, proof reading, ghost writing, query letter writing, literary agent search, and much more. We will write your blog for you, perfect that speech or help you self-publish that book. If you write, our team of published authors, publishing industry experts and academics can help you.
I am an award-winning writer and editor working on academic, non-fiction and fiction manuscripts. I regularly work with fiction and children’s writers as well as doctoral students. I have also edited books and papers for academics throughout the world, and for many authors at publishers including Oxford University Press, Harvard University Press and Yale University Press. I have also guided many writers of fiction to publishing success. I am an author, ghost writer and an international journalist. After the publication of my book, Unveiled: Love and Death Among the Ayatollahs, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei condemned me as ‘a notorious man-hater’ for the book’s strong attack on the violation of women’s rights in Iran.
I also work with writers as a mentor and I have guided authors of fiction, non-fiction and academic works. My latest book, a crime thriller, will be published soon.
I worked for many years at The Financial Times, The Independent and The Guardian and has been a regular contributor to The Economist. I have also written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, The South China Morning Post and many other newspapers and magazines worldwide. I have appeared on the BBC – including Radio 4’s the Today programme and on Newsnight.
I have edited several major academic studies, and also edited books by professors at Oxford and Harvard – among others. As well as writing fiction for adults and children. I have also written several screenplays.
