Overview

Andrew entered writing and copy/script editing through theatre, TV and Film. As an actor, Andrew developed an ear for structure and dialogue which has served him well in developing and nurturing the talent of others. These include novelists, short story writers, screenwriters, as well as playwrights.

Andrew's key objective is to turn a good idea into a compelling piece of storytelling while never undervaluing the importance of detail. Although a published author in his own right, one of Andrew's greatest joys is to get inside the head of a talented author and help bring their vision to life.

I cannot teach you how to write, but I can help you bring your writing to its fullest potential, and in doing so, guide you towards a greater realisation of your own powers as a writer -- and who knows, a published one at that!
