So, what’s working with Golden Egg like? It’s like coming home as a writer, to a place where words, stories and writing for children are the shared passions of like-minded people. There are two aspects of this process that are particularly powerful. One, there’s the excellent, if daunting, forensic skill of the editors. They get story, get under the skin of yours and ask deep, incisive questions.
The second thing Golden Egg provides, beyond the expertise, distributed across their team of editors, with buckets of experience of the harsh and demanding world of publishing commercially, is the opportunity to be part of a genuinely caring community. It is this community aspect that is as important and enriching as the direct support for your writing. You meet lots of fellow writers, fascinating people who share your obsession with story and you get to feel that you are not, as you stare into the screen in the wee small hours day after day wondering if you should just simply jack it in, all alone.
