Holyer an Gof Publishers’ Awards 2023

The annual Gorsedh Kernow Holyer an Gof Awards were instigated in 1996 for books published in 1995 and are so named in memory of Redruth publisher and Cornish Bard Leonard Truran, whose Bardic name was Holyer an Gof – Follower of The Smith. The scheme was established and is organised by Bards of Gorsedh Kernow to promote books about Cornwall, set in Cornwall or in Cornish (Kernewek).

As a writer, I enjoy turning clients’ ideas into words – whether it’s the manuscript for a book or copy for a magazine, newsletter, brochure, blog or website. I can write on many topics and love the thrill of adapting to a client’s needs. Just tell me the subject and off I go …


Whether you want a project editor or a copy editor (or something in-between), taking a good piece of work and making it even better is what I do.



A misplaced apostrophe or incorrect spelling will make at least some of your readers cringe. That final check on a piece of work before it goes to print is all important so let me proofread it for you.


I am a freelance writer, editor and proofreader living in Hampshire. I have worked in publishing for over 20 years but have been involved in writing and editing for over 30 years.

I love working with words – it gives me the outlet I need to satisfy my creativity. I am happy working on projects of any size, with a team or on my own and on almost any subject. Tell me what you want and I’ll see what I can do!
