Andrew Lowe – Editor

Friendly, precise editor and writing coach. Lots of experience with various genres. I'm an author, too. So I know what it's like.


"The kind of editor who can make an author love the editing process." ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Chele Cooke, Author


I'll help you strengthen your narrative voice, polish your craft, and deliver a book that's true to your vision.

I'm open, collaborative and flexible, and I've worked across multiple genres in both trad and indie publishing.

I'm tight on story and structural work, but also a meticulous copy-editor.

If you don't have a finished manuscript, I can still help. I love to coach aspiring authors, levelling up their technique and confidence as they tackle the first draft.


"A strong attention to detail. Always thinking about story as well as the copy." ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As a journalist, I've worked with major titles such as Vogue, GQ, Wired and Total Film, and I've written for many high-profile publications including The Guardian and The Sunday Times.

I've written thousands of published words – short and long-form features, coverlines, headlines, reviews, interviews, marketing copy – and rewritten, restructured and recommissioned thousands more.

So far, I've written twelve books - ten fiction, two non-fiction,

I hate picnics.

From the first message contact via Reedsy, I felt my manuscript was going to be in good hands. As a debut novelist, I was uncertain of what the copyediting stage of the process would be like, but Andrew made it easy, giving me regular feedback and lots of additional advice along the way (which I'm sure must have exceeded the strict definition of a copy editor's role). I will certainly be usin...

The copyedit is fantastic—very thorough and has been an enormous help in ...
