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.

Not sure how the format works,as someone interested in joining, would it be appropriate for me to come along for this meeting?
As a member, not one of the organisers, I’d just like to say what a friendly group this is. And helpful too. You will get some really constructive feedback if you bring along a page or so of your work. Cherry asked us to try and produce something about dinosaurs and bookshops, but I don’t think that’s compulsory.
That’s nice of you to get back to me. Yes, I hope to be there, not necessarily with a dinosaur. Thanks Paul
Just to say I enjoyed the session last night and felt very welcome. It is also so positive to get enthusiastic feedback.
I will definitely be back.
I would be happy to share my writing blog on wordpress. It is:
I have drawn up a short/long list of publishers/agents to approach with the book proposal and will be targetting them over the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for your advice and suggestions in this regard.
ps, I liked your colourful “tent”, if I were a girl I would def wear one on these humid stuffy days….
Thanks for the email- sorry I could not make last meeting. I seem to remember something about dinosaurs. I thought of a scenario where the dinosaurs returned through time travel , and found that the books were also worried about becoming extinct through new ideas and technology.
Hope to make the next evening.
