If you write, we can help. The Oxford Editors is a leading international literary consultancy, based in Oxford, dedicated to helping writers.

We provide the expert help and advice you need to write your novel, screenplay, thesis or article. If you write, we can help and many of our authors have gone on to great success. We also work with top publishers worldwide and have a large network of literary agents to whom we regularly recommend our clients. Our clients include first-time authors, professors at top universities, politicians, and established authors, playwrights and poets who want a second opinion from a professional.

We cover fiction, non-fiction and academic writing and can provide a wide range of editorial and assessment services to writers no matter what genre.

The Oxford Editors offers manuscript assessment for fiction, non-fiction and academic books, as well as editorial assessment of screenplays, plays and poetry. However, there is a lot more; we also provide re-writing, copy editing, proof reading, ghost writing, on-line writing courses and one-to-one mentoring.

Our editors are published authors, successful screenwriters, ghost writers, copy editors and proof readers, and they will pass on years of writing and publishing experience to help you make the best of your writing.

The Oxford Editors works with new and established authors. Each writer is important to us, from the young boy who wants a mentor to help write his first book to established authors who want a second critical eye run over their work before their publisher gets hold of it.

The Oxford Editors also has a strong academic tradition and has worked with academics from around the world. Many of our academic authors write for  leading university publishers and have been published in some of the most influential journals in their field.

We also take on a very limited number of authors to act as their literary agent.

We are open despite the coronavirus lockdown. To help out in these uncertain times, we are offering discounts on most of our services. All our staff are working and happy to hear from you. Please keep well and safe.


I submitted the first 55k words of my novel for assessment, and I got back a 7k document – including excerpts for commentary – with detailed analysis on each chapter, character development, dialogue and such. My editor opens with a synopsis of her analysis, which I thought was great, and in which she very quickly produced some real insight, both kind and critical, but always constructive.
