My name is Victoria Reeve. I research, write and publish in scholarly books and journals on literature, culture, genre, reading, embodied cognition, and emotion. My work is interdisciplinary, crossing over into the social sciences. That means I can help academics and students in the humanities and social sciences seeking guidance on making their writing persuasive and compelling and creative writers who want to make their stories engaging.
If you've ever had trouble fleshing out an idea (whether for a story or an essay), or if you find that the opposite is the case and need to get your word count down, I can help.
It's often a matter of structure, and it's always about what your reader wants from your writing.
Whether you are a creative writer, a student of the humanities or social sciences, or a published academic, I can help you develop your writing to meet your goals.
I was awarded a PhD in Literary Studies by Melbourne University (2011) and an MA in Creative Writing by the University of Tasmania (2021). I began offering coaching in creative writing after being repeatedly told by my writing peers on online courses that my feedback was the best part of their learning experience. Although I research, write, and edit, I'm also an experienced tertiary teacher and I know how to get students motivated and enjoying their studies.
