About Kelly


Hi, I’m Kelly, a writer, editor and writing coach who is passionate about helping writers tell their stories and polish their words..

I have written two short films and numerous short stories, and been published in a Louise Hay book – Modern Day Miracles, as well as on the web. I currently teach Third Draft and Fourth Draft Novel Writing with Roland Fishman at The Writer’s Studio in Sydney, as well as run my own business as a freelance editor and writing coach.

I am an avid student of writing and have learned from Roland at The Writer’s Studio, award winning author, Pamela Freeman, and thriller writer, L.A Larkin. I continue to hone my craft, and after two binned novels and numerous redrafting, I am at the final edit stage of my first book in a new urban fantasy series.

When I’m not writing and editing stories, I’m reading, watching or talking about stories. Basically I’m a professional daydreamer who would rather live in books and movies than the real world.

In my down time, you will find me wrangling children, researching my next travel destination and eating cake.

Hire Me – Writing. Editing. Coaching

My business is words. And the magic of how to craft them into stories.

I hold qualifications in creative writing (UTS), business and TESOL, and have 20 years combined experience working as a writer, editor, marketer and English language teacher.

I have edited and assessed manuscripts from most genres, and mentored writers at all levels of ability. I do manuscript assessments and all types of editing; including substantive, developmental, copy or line editing, and proofreading.

I also coach other writers to find their story and unique style, build strong characters and plot, and a compelling story arc. I help keep them accountable for meeting their writing goals.

If you would like to hire me as a editor or writing coach, then email me on kelly.rigby@me.com
