The only thing more satisfying than reading a good book is writing one yourself.

And maybe it’s just me, but I find there’s a quiet beauty in the perfect arrangement of words … And if you want to write your best work, that’s where you should focus: on crafting the words on the page.

Not so long ago all a writer needed was solitude and a well-oiled typewriter. These days we open our laptops to write but instead are bombarded with reams of fleeting inspiration, conflicting writing advice and people trying to teach us the secrets of becoming best-selling Kindle authors. It can all get a little overwhelming, to put it mildly.

Take a step back from all of that. Worry about your author platform later down the line. Right now, crafting your story is all that matters.

Here at Liminal Pages, I’d like to help you do just that.

I’m Sophie Playle, I specialise in critiquing and editing works of fantasy, sci-fi and speculative fiction, but I also teach online courses designed to help all creative writers improve their craft. Whether your aim is to find a literary agent, to self-publish or to simply indulge your love of writing – welcome. I hope you’ll find something here for you.
