We know how frustrating it is writing alone and the difference it makes having the attentive ear of someone who respects the process and understands its challenges. The work begins long before we ever put pen to paper.
This work is not always readily obvious to the readers of our final products. It is, however, evidenced by the degree of their immersion in the stories we weave and their engagement with the articles and books we publish.

Coaching is for you if you already have an idea for a story/article or if you are struggling with some aspect of a story you are currently writing. You will be assigned a writing coach who meets with you one‑on‑one to discuss your needs. He or she will help shape your idea into what you envision or assist you in working through the problem you are currently experiencing. Meetings will occur through scheduled phone conversations or during a video meeting, whichever you prefer. Your coach will ask probing questions to tease out your thinking, while integrating supplemental information on your topic to inform your approach and sharpen your focus.

Developmental editing is for you if you already have a book manuscript or draft of an article that requires review. Dust off the manuscript that's been sitting dormant for months or years! We will conduct a developmental critique of your manuscript, which focuses on elements like strength, structure, organization, cohesiveness, and readability, as well as authenticity. In addition to editor’s marks on your draft, your editor will provide you with a written critique and share his or her thoughts with you during a scheduled phone conversation or video meeting. We edit academic articles in the social sciences, history/bio, and fiction (specifically sci-fi, horror, fantasy, and humor)
