Having spent over three decades in education (first as a secondary school teacher and now as a university tutor) reading, amending, and assessing the written word has taken up most of my adult life.

Although we do still consider manuscripts for publication, Oldbird has evolved into offering publishing services for aspiring children’s book authors.

If you are a writer who is looking for constructive, detailed, and honest written feedback on their manuscript, then you have come to the right place. Please visit the Services page to find out how we can help you.

To find a new career after two previously fulfilling ones (retail management, then teaching) is a real blessing. I look forward to building my new business with customer service at its heart. A good book is a joy to (be)hold!
