Penelope Price

Penelope Price - Editor

Bristol, United Kingdom

I have over ten years' experience of making stories the best they can be, while preserving the author's unique voice.

Overview

Reviews (1)

I have been working in the publishing industry as an editor for over ten years and have been freelance for more than half of that time, with clients including Pan Macmillan, HarperCollins, Headline and Quercus Books. Although I mainly edit fiction, I am also experienced in non-fiction and am as happy tackling an illustrated biography as I am working my way through a YA adventure novel, the latest literary debut, or a gruesome thriller. If you're unsure whether I'll be suited to your project, please ask - I will probably be happy to take it, and the chances are I will have worked on something similar in the past.
