Nice to meet you!

Hi there! I'm Jess Gately, a Perth-based editor, writer and photographer. While that might seem like an odd mix, I love telling stories both in pictures and words.


My writing has appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald and Jetstar Magazine, and I've worked as an editor with Underground Writers for the better part of ten years. I specialise in science fiction and fantasy manuscripts, with a particular interest in the languages created for these fictional worlds, but I've also worked on a variety of fiction manuscripts across a range of genres.

Having worked in marketing in the literature industry for the past three years, I have a clear understanding of techniques authors can use to help sell their work, which is why I also offer basic web design services, social media mentoring, and professional headshots.

If you need help getting your next book off the ground, get in touch and let's talk about how I can help you!
