Thank you to Alison Buckley, Macksville, who is writing a novel about a Kurdish woman fighter, and had this to say on return of her 260 page manuscript:
‘When Julia Osborne recently reviewed my manuscript, she generously took the time to discuss it beforehand and completed a light edit in a few days. She engaged empathetically with both my manuscript and my journey as writer, and also made fearlessly honest recommendations. When I picked up the hard copy, Julia went through her notes and clarified them.
‘I appreciated her respect for both my work and my efforts to traditionally publish for the first time. Julia is an experienced, published writer with a sound knowledge of English and an intuitive feel for the context, characters and writing style of a manuscript.
‘Working with her has been enlightening and encouraging, and I would recommend her editing to anyone requiring professional feedback on their writing.’
