The writer’s secret helper


Do you need editorial help? Or help with your writing?

Have you a manuscript or short story that needs polishing for sending to an agent, a publisher or to self publish? Then let me help you.

My name is Dr Karen Ette and I am The Writer’s Secret Helper. Based in Leicestershire in the East Midlands, and close to Loughborough University, I have both an MA and a PhD in English and creative writing. I can help you to not only write and develop your work, but to also edit your manuscript, or academic work, whatever the intended publication.

Proofreading and editing is all part of the writing process. It begins with the self-edit, which is essential and goes a long way towards fine-tuning your manuscript. A professional proofreader and/or copy-editor can make it even better, and take away the stress of self-editing. It’s the author’s name on the cover, and the editor is the secret helper behind the manuscript.

I am a PTC trained freelance proofreader and copy-editor, and an intermediate level member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

My services include:  copy-editing, proofreading, writing support: coaching or mentoring, and I can help you with self-publishing, if that’s what you are looking to do.

Please  Contact me if you have any questions or need help with your writing.

Happy to help.
