Agatha Whitechapel

Agatha Whitechapel – Editor

Visual storyteller. Former senior editor with 20 years' experience. Specializing in fantasy, science fiction, and anything monster-related.

Overview

Hot cross pun! As an editor with 20 years' of experience working with both standard and indie publishers, I offer high-quality editing and look forward to bringing my skills and experience to helping you polish your very best manuscript.


I have hands-on experience in the film, arts and language industries, and my clients include Netflix, the BBC, KHM Vienna, Inkitt and self-publishing authors. I've worked on a variety of fiction, from light magical mysteries to dark erotica and epic battle quests; from titanic witch tomes to sweeping sci-fi sagas; from serious literary opuses to fantastical and strange fiction. I work closely with you to help you get the best from your story, providing meticulous attention to detail and constructive, incisive feedback.

I love strange and quirky, offbeat, dark and original. My favorite part of the job is working collaboratively with an author to bring out the very best version of their work.

If I ever work with another editor, they’ve got one hell of a set of shoes to fill. Agatha has been my first experience of using an editor and has set the bar sky high in everything she has helped me with! When we first spoke she guided me through everything she would need and set off with a my manuscript to get stuck in. What came back after a few weeks was a comprehensive breakdown over mult...

Agatha's experience, patience and contacts were invaluable. She was very professional and gladly answered questions or concerns about the process. As this was my first book, I couldn't have asked for a better editor to work with and hope that I am able to work with her again in the future. I would 100% recommend Agatha to any who require a stellar editor.
