Maddy Glenn

January 2019

Studied the Proofreading and Copy Editing course

Maddy Glenn"The Writers Bureau course taught me invaluable knowledge about English grammar. It trained me to keep an eye out for grammar mistakes which may not have been obvious straight away. It also taught me a lot about how publishing houses work! This course, and all that The Writers Bureau have to offer, has hugely developed my editing skills, especially when working with American English (which is not my own dialect).

"I have built a website, and have a social media platform on Instagram, selling my editing services. I can do proofreading, copy editing and content editing. I also help writers develop their query letters to agents.

"Earlier this year my business boomed. I went from one steady client to three and I am now fully booked till November 2019! I recently revamped my website and re-branded. The business is now called Softwood Self-Publishing. I hope to involve other freelancers in my business in the future to enable writers to go from a fledgling idea to a self-published manuscript.

"I have most experience in YA fantasy but I aim to broaden my horizons. I am now studying an MA in English Literature, with one module on Screenwriting."
