Read our interview with editor Philippa Donovan. She gives great answers to how she do and can help an author. She established Smart Quill, an editorial company, in 2011. Since then she has worked with around 300 authors and recommends to a stable of 50 literary agents based in the UK, Australia, and the US. In 2014 she was named Publishing Rising Star and is Editorial Consultant for the Authors' Club at Soho House West Hollywood.
-Tell us a little about your daily work, what is it exactly that you do? And why have you chosen this path?
I absolutely adore working with authors, and I found that various roles in publishing took me further away from them. So I decided to forge a consultancy where I could work with them one on one - personalised and bespoke author services. This consists of structural editing, copy editing, agent recommendation, and book to film/tv adaptation guidance (as I very recently moved to LA!).
