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.

Overview


"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.

ABOUT ME

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.

Andrew is a diamond! Assiduous, thoughtful, intelligent. Felt he really understood and engaged with my work - he ‘got me’ and found the right balance between imposing a little bit of discipline to my prose, but never letting that get in the way of my voice and my ideas. At the end of the process (which he completed before time) we had a valuable chat where he gave me honest feedback. A real ...

Andrew **is** a master class in writing. I received a great deal of very practical and hands-on feedback to begin revising my draft and improving my craft, altogether. Andrew is easy to work with and if you're open to honest, professional, and proven experience - he will elevate your understanding of what it means to write a novel. As a first time scifi writer, I had a lot of ideas squashed int...

We had an depth catch up after I'd received the edits and had a chance to...

Andrew's feedback was very helpful. He mostly told me what I knew already, but gave me some concrete suggestions of how to get there. I am very grateful to have been able to work with him.

This was a wonderful experience for me, and I feel like I have grown as a writer because of it. Andrew gave me a long set of very thorough and generous notes, and we had a two-hour Zoom conference. Mostly we discussed the shape of the story, which characters to emphasize, which to cut. Andrew was also very generous in his advice about the publishing industry. There is no way I could quantify th...
