Precious few editors can immerse themselves in a writer’s creative vision and materially participate in the realization of that vision without imposing their own. This trait alone makes Kate indispensable to me. She was instrumental in attaining publication of my first novel, The Legend of Sander Grant, and has since edited every piece I’ve completed – from journalism to verse. She achieves the harmonic writer/editor partnership often promised and rarely seen. I trust her opinion as much as my own. Marc Phillips
I spent three years in a writing rut, going nowhere with the structure of an alright tale until Kate pondered, deconstructed, reshuffled, and re-set. Three weeks with Kate and the opening explodes, the fat is trimmed, the plot thickened, the characters assassinated, and the denouement reached. Thereafter, I was runner-up in a novel writing competition. Mary D’Arcy
Gold dust is all I can say! Loved your comments. I see what you mean and am doing all you suggest. Thank you so much for your constructive, encouraging remarks. Laura Graham
Your feedback was truly excellent – really insightful and very spot on. I really feel like I learnt a lot in a short space of time. Many many thanks for your help. Julie Nugent
When Kate Gould puts a pen to your work, the product isn’t just a great critique or superlative edit but a tremendous tutorial, and the result isn’t just an improved manuscript, story or poem but a stepping stone to becoming a better writer, miles ahead of wherever you were. I’m very new to writing, but I’ve received numerous short-listings, runner-ups and merits as consequence to applying her advice. There are few investments that pay so big of dividends as the skills of Kate Gould. E. M. Kuzara.
Thanks so much for your comments. I can’t tell you how helpful and encouraging they are. James Fogarty
Thank you very much for the time, effort and huge amount of work that you have put into my novel. I will certainly be taking your comments on board and I will amend on your advice.

Great work is always recognised and you will have writers coming back to you time and time again. Daniel Seery
