Welcome to Brightside Story Studio. We offer editorial and mentoring services to help authors achieve their writing goals in fiction and memoir.
The studio is run by Andrea Barton, who loves getting to know our authors and collaborating with them on their projects. She is also Editorial Head – Adult Nonfiction/Fiction at NAC, and her novel, LOST IN LAGOS, was long-listed in the 2021 Hawkeye Publishing Manuscript Development Prize.
Check out our blog, The Winding Narrative, where Andrea shares her writing journey, expat experiences and foray into country life. She interviews others – authors, small business owners, anyone with their own winding narrative. Her latest post is an interview with Marcie Maxfield on Identity and the Expat Spouse and her fabulous debut, Em’s Awful Good Fortune.
