Hire a Writer with the Writers Marketplace


Paul Witcover, Editor

Accepting new clients

I've worked as an editor and writer in the field of speculative fiction for over 30 years. I was the science fiction and fantasy editor for the eBook and print-on-demand division of Time Warner books, where I edited fifteen novels and story collections. My editorial clients have included Random House, HarperCollins, the Avalon Publishing Group, NightShade Books, and TokyoPop, among others.

I have a Master's Degree in Creative Writing from The City College of New York and am a graduate of the prestigious Clarion Writer's Workshop. I am member of the Science Fiction Writers of America. I teach creative writing at UCLAExtension and in the Online MFA program at Southern New Hampshire University.

As an editor, I work closely with authors to identify and fix problem areas in a manuscript at all levels. While I believe my experience as a writer gives me unique insight into the issues that other writers face on the page, I pride myself on putting that experience to work in the service of my clients to make their fiction the best it can be. paulwitcover.com
