We are delighted that Group 2012 is almost a year old and so we intend to celebrate.
The December meeting will take place on Wednesday 19th, 7pm-9pm at Blackwell’s main shop on Broad Street. There will wine, snacks and members will read from work they have completed since the group began. Many of the wonderful people who spoke to us over the year will be there, and the order of the night will be ENJOY and CELEBRATE.
This year, two members found agents and we are expecting to celebrate our first book launch very soon.
Wednesday 17 October, The Oxford Quaker House, St Giles, at 7pm.
Self publishing, the next frontier or just vanity.
A discussion on self publishing with Dan Holloway, novelist and poet. Dan will discuss why, when and where self publishing can change an author’s entire career.
Wednesday 21st November, Oxford Quaker Meeting House, St Giles, at 7pm.
Release your creativity.
We will work together using a series of exercises to help develop your skills and release your creativity. There will be group and individual sessions, so bring anything that is giving you sleepless nights.
The Oxford Quaker Meeting House is at 43 St Giles, OX1 3LW. It has a red door and is a few houses away from the Eagle & Child pub and opposite the Lamb & Flag pub.
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.

One thought on “Forthcoming meetings”
I’ll look forward to the next meeting, I had to miss the last one – work got in the way 😦
In the meantime I have a problem that I hope you can help me with. I have a spot on the Pegasus Theatre Playathon on Sunday 14th and I have lost an actor due to a family illness. Do you know anyone who could play a fairly young security guard (man or woman)?
Fortunately they won’t need to learn lines – it’s a read from the script event.
Any help will be very welcome.
