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.

I think you mean Wed 27 Nov.
It’s a big rise in cost – I hope it means we get the w’shops and other such events free?
I’ll pay up but would prefer it to be £25.
is it Jan 30 and feb 27 ?
I think the fee increase is absolutely justified.
The fee sounds very good value to me, such a variety of speakers and useful discussions. Sorry I haven’t been able to come for ages but I hope the New Year will not be so fraught. I am planning to self publish a collection of my short stories later in the year so am ‘head down and ploughing on’ at present.
Time is short but I very much hope to be there with you all whenever I can. Liz Henderson
The problem is that we now have to cover some cost for staffing so we have to raise more money. I also think a pub evening once a month to just talk books would be fun. Liz, lovely to have you back anytime.
Hi Cherry ( and everyone in the Blackwell’s Writers )
I am so sorry but I don’t think I am going to make it to join you for the next meeting ( 27th Nov 2019). I have just sent off my collection of short stories to the Publisher and am hurtling about looking after my husband who has had some emergencies with an emergency ‘heart block’/ operation and endless tests.
He will probably be in hospital on 27th so I won’t be able to come along. I have missed our meetings very much… writing can be quite a lonely business can’t it!
However with the prospect of my book coming out in March some time, I am having to forego some luxuries until publication is complete.
I very much hope I’ll be able to come to the New Year meetings so please keep me ‘in the loop’ by continuing to let me know dates and time of meetings/talks.
Many thanks, and wishing you all a very HAPPY NEWY YEAR in 2020.
