Professional Editing & Proofreading Services

Momus Editorial is focused on bringing book projects to publication, offering help, advice and professional support to writers and publishers. My services include - but are not limited to - editorial advice, copy-editing, proofreading and ebook production. I also recognise that every project is different, and every client has unique requirements, including budget. I aim to be as flexible as possible, offering bespoke services tailored to the needs of each project. I'm particularly interested in working with independent publishers and self-publishing authors.

Dan has worked as a freelance writer and editor for over ten years, writing fiction and non-fiction for print and online markets in the UK and the US, including The Guardian, Salon and numerous magazines and anthologies. His anthology This Dreaming Isle (Unsung Stories, 2018) has been shortlisted for Best Edited Anthology at the Shirley Jackson Awards, Being Dad (Tangent, 2016) won Best Anthology 2016 at the Saboteur Awards, and his New Zealand travel memoir was used as background research for a major ITV documentary. He has previously taught creative writing workshops at Richard Hugo House, Seattle, and is currently editor and publisher of The Shadow Booth.
