Who are we?


About Us

Writing.co.uk was established by its Founder and Director, Keirsten Clark, in 2002 to bridge a gap between aspiring, undiscovered authors and literary agents and publishers.

Keirsten's experiences whilst working at one of the UK's leading literary agents, Curtis Brown, made her realise that authors needed more than just a rejection slip. They needed guidance and writing advice to fine-tune their manuscript into a professional format which would encourage an agent or publisher to look beyond the first few pages.

It may surprise you, but Keirsten still takes the time to chat to every author to find out exactly what they need before recommending any services. She also still goes through every report that comes back across her desk so that she knows exactly what kind of next steps they need to take and what their onward writing journey will look like.

Whether authors wish to self-publish or approach literary agents or publishers, our belief is always the same, and that is, it's all about story. And you have one to tell. We are here to help you get it out there in the best way possible.
