"George Parker is the kind of person we desperately need in this world.
They have been proofreading my English poems and short stories for many years and I wouldn't want to work with anyone else; they're a fantastic critic and their advice is always kind, constructive, and helps a lot. Their support has been immense on numerous occasions and their writing skills are incredible!
In their workshops, they provide a professional environment for artistic development and I recommend them very highly.
This wonderful human being will change your (artistic) life!"
Which editorial service is right for me?
The process of copyediting ensures that text is correct in terms of spelling, grammar, punctuation, terminology, semantics and formatting. It will also improve readability.
Developmental editing aims to improve the content and structure of a manuscript. It examines the structure, story, pacing, continuity, characterisation, and style of the manuscript.
Ready to submit to agents?
I'll provide detailed feedback on your cover letter, synopsis and first three chapters of your manuscript. The review will include suggestions for how to improve each item in your submission pack and strengthen your chances of receiving an offer of representation.

"George and I have collaborated on several projects over the years, including editorial, feedback, and proofreading for my work and for my clients. George has always been professional and direct with feedback, delivers work on time, and provides encouragement to smooth the journey. I would recommend their work and services to anyone who needs an editor or proofreader."
"Amara George Parker is an absolute blessing to any writer or poet. When I switched from writing prose to poetry, I didn't have a lot of confidence in this new terrain. Amara not only gave me helpful suggestions on grammar and punctuation, they shared their wholehearted delight in my creativity and desire to share beauty with the world. Their loving encouragement has led to me submitting poems to a number of publications and already receiving acceptance letters. Without their support, I'm not sure I would have been brave enough to share them. I can't recommend AG Parker highly enough!"
