Understand and apply the principles of editing and re-writing with this comprehensive, practical handbook for writers who wish to perfect their prose and prepare for publication.

Writing is a magical hobby and form of expression but getting words on the page is not the same as finalising material which you are happy to send out and share. This book is a complete toolkit which will help you to tame doubts and insecurities and engage with your internal critic in order to assert control over your manuscript and elevate your writing.

Written by the team behind one of the world's most successful literary consultancies, ON EDITING will show you how to master the art of self-editing - perhaps the least understood but most vital skill in the writer's toolkit. You will learn to compose, draft and edit while sharpening your writing and ensuring that your novel is structurally sound, authentic, well-written and ready for submission.

The Teach Yourself Creative Writing series helps aspiring authors tell their stories. Covering a range of genres from science fiction and romantic novels to illustrated children's books and comedy, this series is packed with advice, exercises, and tips for unlocking creativity and improving your writing. And because we know how daunting the blank page can be, we set up the Just Write online community, at, for budding authors and successful writers to connect and share.
