Work with me

Do you have great ideas, but struggle to get your words on the page? Are you looking for the motivation to tell your story? 

I might be the girl for you! 

I love working with clients to help them share their words, wisdom and craft with  an audience. I do this in a number of ways: 

  • If you've got the words but need an editor's lens over your work, I can offer manuscript assessments or undertake a full structural edit of your project.

  • Have the ideas but no time? I have worked on numerous ghostwriting projects, and can help your book come to life!

  • Need advice and motivation? I offer one-on-one mentoring sessions, either in person or via Skype, to help you get the advice you need to keep going. 

If you think we would work well together, or just want to know more, send me an email and we can get started!


"Zoya Patel completely nails her hosting role. The other panellists are fantastic too, but it’s her focus and tenacity as a moderator that helps them shine."

- National Young Writers Festival, review, 2015

"I can't tell you how much I enjoyed your workshop. I learned much about the mysteries of developing a unique social media identity, thanks in large part to your gift for creating a warm atmosphere for easy conversation."

- Dr Skye Saunders, workshop participant, 2017

"Working with Zoya has been a wonderful experience.  My book is so much better because of her guidance. She gave me excellent, clear feedback and suggestions that pushed me to go further. Her suggestions as to how to move forward with publication are helpful and of course I am now hoping for a positive outcome and that the world out there will get to read the book we have both worked on."
