‘Gary Dalkin’s work was-second-to-none and resulted in me landing a book deal within 6 weeks of his edit.’
CM Angus – author of Overstrike, Elsewhen Press, 2020
My name is Gary Dalkin. Whatever your writing needs, drawing on my 26 years’ experience as a published writer and editor, I can help (click here to contact me). I am a writer and editor specialising in structural editing, (also known as substantive or developmental editing, manuscript critique or assessment). Additionally I provide a range of other editing services for authors, as well as copy-editing and proofreading for non-technical college and university work. As of May 2021 I am also the Senior Associate Editor at the newly founded independent press, Cadence Publishing.
I provide a friendly, reliable, honest service at competitive rates. I am neither the cheapest nor the most expensive, but many satisfied clients tell me I am one of the best (visit my references page).
My contact information is here and an infrequently updated blog featuring news about my work and a selection of interviews and reviews, plus some articles originally published in Writing Magazine, can be found here.
For more regular updates I recommend following my To The Last Word Facebook Page.
