We are a team both on and off the clock. We’ve been a 24/7 partnership for forty-five years!
Our mission is simple: We want to make your published material as good as it can be.
Our boutique operation specializes in all things literary, from writing and ghostwriting to editing to publishing consultation. We offer knowledge, inspiration, motivation, challenge, hope, and fun. Our goal is to help writers understand that words are gifts and windows into the soul, because we believe that using them wisely and well helps readers discover what this life is for.
We take our mission from Saul Bellow, who said,
"[There is] an immense, painful longing for a broader, more flexible, fuller, more coherent, more comprehensive account of what we human beings are, who we are, and what this life is for.”
If you want to participate in this mission, what you need is a good editor. We offer the following services and more:
