My name’s Kathryn and I’m the Circalit Staff Reviewer for novels and short stories.
I have a lot of experience both as an editor and a writer. I started out as a writer and copyeditor for a branding agency specialising in luxury brands. After completing a masters degree in English Lit, I moved to the Susanna Lea literary agency, where I worked as a reader vetting manuscripts. This means I was dealing with anything from initial plot synopsis/concepts to fully-completed and edited novels. I specialise in young adult fiction and science fiction/fantasy, but I’ve had a lot of experience reading manuscripts of all kinds, and I know what agents and publishers are looking for. I have recently started working at an international publishing house, specializing in rights.
The feedback I offer will cover both the technical side of things - writing style, grammar, the use of language, dialogue etc. - as well as an assessment of plot and character, and whether the story is compelling enough for publication.
