EP204: One Page Punch-Ups SF&F special

In the latest of our One Page Punch-Up specials we asked our Patreon Chart Topper supporters to send in one page from their work-in-progress and we gave them Gollancz’s Gillian Redfearn and Marcus Gipps to review and critique. Between them Gillian and Marcus have worked with some legendary authors, including Joe Hill, Joanne Harris, Joe Abercrombie, and other authors NOT called Jo/Joe, including Neil Gaiman, Scott Lynch, Brandon Sanderson and some chancer called Mark Stay.
And YOU can read along and get inspired. Simply download the PDFs of the original one pages, and — as an added bonus — we’ve included Gillian’s handwritten marked-up pages. Gillian’s notes
