Editing and Short Story Help (from just £20)


As well as writing and teaching, Nik is the founder of The Story Corrective — an editing consultancy specialising in short story help.

Having been writing professionally since 2004 (including stints as a guest editor), I’m well aware of what editors want. When they’re sent a submission, they want to see your short story both finished and in the best possible shape. Put simply, stories that need extra work don’t get published.

So what do you do? You make sure your story’s in the best possible shape! And that’s where The Story Corrective can help.

The Story Corrective will provide a professional appraisal, a line edit, and an editorial report within 7 days of receiving payment. It’s as simple as that.

And how much will it cost?

Express Edit – for stories under 2000 words. Includes a line edit and brief report.


Full Edit – short stories of any length. Includes a line edit and an in-depth report.


To go ahead with an appraisal, simply paste your story into the box below, including any information you feel is relevant.


Nik also edits longer things as well. Send a message for more information.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask them, by using the form too.
