“I was assigned Clare as my editor as part of the Pulp Idol process and she was wonderful. In emails she was quick to respond and very approachable, making the whole process flow smoothly and comfortably. Her editing suggestions were insightful, providing a balance between points for improvement and encouragement.
“Her critiques were clear and detailed and by pairing these with notes about what she felt I’d done right in the chapter it really felt like she’d engaged with the work and wanted to see it grow. Clare also provided help with shaping my novel pitch, providing useful insight from her own experience as an author.
“At every stage Clare was quick to offer any more help I might need and the whole process felt like a professional but collaborative experience of shaping my work into a polished piece. She was fantastic to work with, and I would recommend her to any aspiring novelist in need of an engaged but firm eye for their writing.”
Elijah Taylor, Author and Pulp Idol Finalist

Clare has always been very efficient and effective in writing these in a way that complex ideas become understandable for a wide audience. Her skills in doing so has been very valuable so far to make my scientific studies accessible for a general audience. In addition to that she is also a very friendly and pleasant person to work with who goes the extra mile in trying to get things done on time.”

Since putting Clare’s work out there it has driven interest in my program and has generated opportunities far beyond anything I expected. Clare’s work was on point and I would have no hesitation in using or recommending her services in the future.”

“I’ve been part of a writing workshop with Clare for the past five years. During that time she has provided me with monthly writing critiques. Clare’s feedback is insightful and meticulous, yet always warm and generous spirited. She achieves the magic balance between no nonsense criticism and continual encouragement. Although she leaves no stone unturned when critically analysing written work, she always keeps my artistic vision at the centre of her reading.
“The feedback I’ve received has been consistently professional, constructive and has helped me to develop tremendously as a writer. In addition to that, Clare is the sweetest soul you could ever wish to meet. I wholeheartedly recommend her service to you!”

“Over the years I worked at Liverpool John Moores University I greatly enjoyed working with Clare on a range of media stories about my research. She has a talent for making the research more ‘press friendly’ while taking care that this didn’t compromise the accuracy story. This combination of accessibility and accuracy in a press release is vital for the credibility of the research – but a very hard act to pull off.”
Prof Dave Wilkinson, Visiting Professor in Ecology at the University of Lincoln, and former Reader in Environmental Science at Liverpool John Moores University.
