'Benedicta always provides a clear and helpful critique. She is able to marry robust and detailed input with positive support. Because she's a writer herself, she knows about the creative process and provides you with ideas and tips about how to make your writing so much better.' Kit de Waal
'Benedicta is a true professional and went through my novella with a fine-tooth comb. She did some hand-holding in the beginning to let me know that Editorial Assessment is what I needed instead of Line by Line Editing. Although she did end up providing Line editing for a section of my story, which I thought was value-added and gave me a preview of what line by line editing looks like. As a new writer, that arrangement turned out to be ideal and I have with me invaluable input on how to address and understand the concepts of point of view, psychic distance, narrative arc, translation of foreign words, and so many other useful and important techniques to improve my writing. I found her to be very approachable in our communication; she knows how to take charge and lead you on the right path. We had clear communication and no misunderstandings. If there is a question a writer has, they should feel free to reach out to their editor. I would work with Benedicta again.'
'Benedicta saved my life! Writing a book is such a solitary activity and just when you think you have given it your all and it's ready to publish, you discover that there is so much more to be done. I cannot recommend Benedicta highly enough. She is a great editor and I can't wait to work with her again.' Catherine Bailey
'Benedicta has a keen eye for detail but is also able to review a manuscript holistically and offer editorial advice on structure, plot and characterisation. Her approach is professional, insightful and empathetic.' Helen Matthews
Benedicta produced a helpful and insightful book report. Her feedback was positive and constructive, and she was very clear about what worked in the story and what needed to be rewritten. Her thoughtful insights into the direction my writing should take have given me the much needed encouragement to finish my first book.
