All lengths and genres of fiction, both adult and YA. My specialties include speculative fiction, LGBTQIA+ themes and characters, feminist work, and activist writing. I am also experienced in working with authors whose first language is not English.
I am the author of three novels, two of which were finalists for literary prizes and were also published in French, and one of which was optioned for a film. My short work has been published in a number of magazines and anthologies. I am also an experienced editor and proof-reader, and I have taught workshops on writing for QWF and for other groups.
I offer all levels of editing, from structural and concept editing, to copy and line editing, to proofreading. I can not only help you with your manuscripts and projects but can also assist you through the process of finding a publisher for your work and preparing marketing materials.
Su Sokol provided thoughtful, focused, and constructive criticism on my manuscript. Xe is professional, encouraging, and a pleasure to work with…. Su is adept at structural editing as well as copy and line editing. Both my manuscript and my writing practice have benefitted immensely from Su’s assistance. I recommend xyr services wholeheartedly!
After having taken an amazing QWF workshop from Su, I asked xyr to edit a speculative fiction short story. The perceptive and thoughtful comments in xyr structural edit pointed out a way to strengthen a stylistic issue that I hadn’t even seen, and confirmed, in the gentlest way, a structural flaw that I had pretended wasn’t lurking. Su’s line edits were thorough and precise, again seeing things I’d missed. The whole process was smooth, timely and so very helpful!
