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.

9 thoughts on “May meeting”
Hi Cherry, What is the date of the May meeting? 24th or 31st? I think that’s an excellent topic for discussion, I would have a lot to say.
Oh, and Blackwells is much more convenient for me as I have to get a train back to Banbury.
Happy with either topic but marginally prefer “books that have helped”
Happy with either place but if asked to vote would vote for Blackwell’s – less fattening!
Please decide,Cherry, and then we can tell all these people who seem not to be on the list! I am anti democracy in this matter.
I also vote for “books that have helped us”, and for Blackwell’s. And I’m assuming it’s next week, on Wed 31st, not tomorrow!
Yes, the 31st. Let;’s make it book that have helped me with my writing and go to Blackwell’s.
I will try my best to be there.
Yes I’d be very interested in books that have helped the most, but am also happy to share work. Are the meetings always on the last wed of the month? I had it down for this week but that’s probably my error.
Looking forward. Liz
Yes Liz, always the last Wednesday. They used to be the third wednesday, but we chaged it a few years ago
Cherry, v happy with topic. But am I a lone voice in preferring the pub? It’s just more relaxed with a pint, I find. As Dr Johnson said: ‘There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn.’ And who would presume to argue with the great Doctor? But I see I am a voice crying in the wilderness, so must see y’all at Blackwell’s. X Alex
