Who am I? I'm Wendy Stuart (nee Millgate) and I've been editing for over 10 years. I love working with words, and people, that aim to make a positive impact on this world. I work with non-fiction book authors, small-to-medium businesses, corporations, self-publishing support companies and Australian government departments.

BOOK editing & proofreading
Non-fiction Manuscript Assessments and Book Editing
Does your manuscript now need an assessment, edit or proofread? Or do you need some quick feedback to move forward?
Choose from a range of assessment and editing services, which can be applied to your manuscript.
My most popular book editing categories are:
self-help and psychology
health, fitness and nutrition
memoir and life story
business and marketing
For a quality manuscript, a combination of services may be applied:
Content & Structural editing
These services can be booked as a stand-alone service or bundled into packages.
The packaged price are guidelines. Each project will receive an individual quote.
"Wendy’s rare mix of professionalism and compassion makes her an editor that goes the extra mile, does the research, thinks outside the box, and most importantly, keeps ‘what’s best for the book and client’’ as her central motivator."
"Wendy’s gentle, loving style was vital in helping our client share her daughter’s story."
Non-Fiction BOOK PLANNING & writing support
Want to write a book, or have started but need some help in moving forward through book coaching and strategising?
Book Planning is essential. Through my
We can strategise and plan your book, get your part-manuscript back on track, deal with any blocks or ... whatever is needed! This is about you and your needs, and us connecting.
Need ongoing mentoring? We can design just the right sort of bespoke mentoring and writing support that you need for your particular writing journey and goals. For example, weekly, fortnight or monthly check-ins either in-person or via Skype or Zoom.
Need ghostwriting support?
Sometimes I can step in and ghostwrite on your behalf, or simply write creative examples for you to draw inspiration from. I also write back cover blurbs, manuscript submissions, reports and blogs.
"Wendy's feedback on my manuscript assessment was amazing! She gave me great direction and constructive advice. I feel empowered to rewrite and create a book I can gift the world."
"Wendy, your patience is beyond extraordinary; your nature is nothing short of beautiful. You have been the solid foundation that has allowed me to express myself in ways I never thought possible."
document editing, PROOFREADING &
Government, Corporate, Business & Academic Editing
Looking for a detailed and professional final polish-up, with confidentiality assured by a Professional Editor?

My most popular document editing projects are:
State government proofreading
resumes & CVs
