ITEM: An editorial critique of a work of science fiction, fantasy or horror by Gollancz editor Rachel Winterbottom
DETAILS: I will provide a written editorial assessment of the first 100 pages (or less) of your novel and synopsis. My assessment will centre on editorial structure, character and pace, as well as notes on the synopsis as a whole. My area is science fiction, fantasy and horror for adult or crossover YA readership, so another editor would be better placed to comment on middle grade or younger, or other genres.
BIO: I have worked in publishing for ten years, and in the last two and half years I’ve specialised in science fiction and fantasy. My current role is senior editor at Gollancz, which is part of Hachette UK. I work with a range of bestselling and awarding-winning authors, as well as wonderful debut authors such as Kristen Ciccarelli and Mimi Yu.
WHO CAN BID: Worldwide (though the novel will need to be written in the English language and the assessment will also be in English)
