Now Editing Poetry

Hello everyone. In the light of publishing Virtue’s End, and my renewed interest in poetry, I am now offering editing to aspiring poets out there. Poetry is very dear to my heart and I believe there should be more real poetry out there in the world. So, for those sincerely looking to improve their poetic craft, whether writing free-verse or more formal poetry, please consider signing up to work with me.

Work edited by me has been nominated for the Bram Stoker, National Indie Excellence, and Splatterpunk Awards. My own poetry, in the form of Virtue’s End, has been described as “an astounding and daring piece poetry, offered with the utmost openness and sincerity, a rare, meticulously crafted gem in an age of rapid mass consumption” (Christa Wojciechowski), and as “[Sale’s] Magnum Opus. An intricate, multilayered epic poem” (Steve Stred).

The main editing criteria for poetry will be:

  • form

  • diction

  • theme

  • style

  • narrative (if relevant)

The pricing for editing is £50 ($70) for up to 50 lines. If you're interested, please don't hesitate to get in touch using the contact form on this website, or by emailing me directly!

Alternatively, if you don’t have something specific you want editing, but you want to find out more about how great narrative is shaped—about poetic form, writing style, and more—consider signing up to Joseph Sale’s Patreon The Mind-Vault, where you can get access monthly videos (including the Magical Writing podcast and interviews with authors), articles, and digital downloads:
