Jake Nicholls is a fiction editor who helps authors develop their manuscripts and hone their storytelling and writing craft. At Future Worlds Editing, Jake specialises in working with writers of science fiction, fantasy and LGBTQIA+ fiction.

Jake lives in the UK, but their head is often away in other universes. When not doing bookish things, they can be found at their drum kit (much to the delight of their neighbours).
