Hire Me

Helen HeathMy career in the publishing industry has been spread across a broad range of roles over the last 20 years including editing, events management, project management & marketing.

The common focus is my love of communicating and promoting the written word. I am highly motivated and pro-active. I love a challenge. I am tenacious about getting things right.

I was accepted into the most prestigious creative writing school in New Zealand and completed my MA with Merit in 2009. My thesis is a book of poetry, which was published by VUP in May 2012. In 2012 I began my doctoral studies in creative writing part-time at the IIML.

I can help you in a couple of ways:


Poetry mentor

I give you feedback on your work, give you ideas to kick-start fresh work and suggest the next step, whether it's sending off a whole book for publication or one poem to a journal.


Manuscript assessment 

I'll read your poetry manuscript and give you honest and practical feedback, suggest possible publishers or changes to the manuscript to get it ready to send out.
