Recently I was given the opportunity to guest on a popular blog by Esther Chilton and I wanted to know more…………
Esther has always loved words and writing, but she started out working with figures in a bank. She was on an accelerated training programme and studying banking exams, which meant she didn’t have time for writing so it wasn’t long before it was a thing of the past – or so Esther thought. Her love affair with writing ignited again when she had a serious injury to her back. It meant she could no longer carry out her job working in the bank and it led her back to writing, which has now become a daily part of her life.
She has now been working as a freelance writer for nearly twenty years, regularly writing articles and short stories for magazines and newspapers such as Freelance Market News, Writers’ Forum, Writing Magazine, The Guardian, Best of British, The Cat, and The People’s Friend to name a few.
Winner of Writing Magazine, Writers’ News and several other writing competitions and awards, Esther has also had the privilege of judging writing competitions.
As well as working as a freelance writer, she has branched out into the exciting world of copywriting, providing copy for sales letters, brochures, leaflets, web pages, slogans and e-mails.
Esther loves writing but equally she enjoys helping others, which she achieves in her role as a tutor for The Writers Bureau. She feels like a proud parent when one of her students has a piece of writing published. Some of them have gone on to become published authors and have achieved great success.
In addition to tutoring Esther works as a freelance copyeditor offering an editing, guidance and advice service for authors and writers. She has edited novels, non-fiction books, articles and short stories. You can find out more about it here: https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/guidance-and-advice/

Many thanks for all her help with all the writers she has assisted and wish her well with her future projects and successful students.
