Manuscript Evaluation

We will provide broad feedback on your manuscript. This includes general feedback on the themes of the book, feedback on the piece’s structure, voice and narrative. This is meant to be a starting point from which you can re-write and edit your work.

Line Edit

We will go through the building blocks of your book: sentences. We will go through each line of your book to make sure you are conveying your thoughts in the best way you can. The goal is to ensure your writing flows, is concise, coherent and is pleasurable to read.

Book Marketing

We offer bespoke book-marketing services for authors that we believe in. Our customized plans will help you reach new audiences and start conversations about your book. Get in touch with us today by filling up the enquiry form.

Writing Mentorship

We handhold writers through every stage of the writing process through consistent editorial reviews and meetings. We make ourselves available to our writers from the ideation stage to the point where they are ready to pitch their work. Our writers' pieces are as much our babies as they are theirs!

Proposal Edit

Have a great idea? Want to pitch to a publication or a publishing house. Or do you need help applying for a grant for an exciting new project? We will help you line-edit your proposal, strengthen the concept of your pitch, help define your market and structure your chapter outlines. The goal is to grab your reader’s attention and convey your ideas in the most structured, coherent, and interesting way possible.
