Angela Snowden – Editor

Accredited, experienced and respectful. I work with HarperNorth and Bookouture on fiction and non-fiction.


It can be utterly nerve-wracking to hand over your manuscript for evaluation, which is why I edit with the intrinsic understanding that this is your work, your voice, your labour of love. My approach is to work in collaboration with you, offering honest and constructive feedback while preserving your style, honouring your vision and respecting your expertise. Your work will be in safe hands.

I have worked with words for over fifteen years. I work with writers, publishers and organisations on manuscripts, marketing, reports, articles and theses.

Beyond my professional credentials, I simply love working with words: their limitless potential to express and evoke, the anticipation of a fresh manuscript and the promise of treasures within its pages, and that every collection of words offers new knowledge, insight and perspective.

Work experience


Jan, 2019 — Present

I'm so lucky to do a job I love. The excitement of a new manuscript landing in my inbox is like nothing else! I work with individual clients, organisations, and two of the Big Five (Hachette and HarperCollins) on developmental editing, copyediting and proofreading projects. Feel free to peruse some of my past projects below.
I'd love to chat about how I can help with your project.

Angela was highly professional throughout. She recommended I follow through with an accesment before moving forward with line edits, and for that I am thankful. She delivered on time, along with giving me amazing information, tips, and even provided examples to help better my story. I highly recommend her.
