Founded in 1980 by Renni Browne, coauthor of Self-Editing for Fiction Writers and one of the most experienced book editors working in publishing today, The Editorial Department has a 34-year track record of turning promising manuscripts into successfully published books.
We have 19 editors and manuscript consultants on staff, many of whom are seasoned veterans of the traditional publishing scene and uniquely qualified to help you publish traditionally or independently to the highest standard possible. We also have a talented team of cover artists, book designers, e-book formatting and marketing specialists and a full menu of support services for authors who wish to self-publish.
Our clients include several New York Times bestselling authors and range from writers seeking publication for the first time to established authors looking to take their careers to the next level. Our highly personalized approach to helping writers reach their goals has earned us feature coverage from The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, Writers Digest, and "recommended" status by the Internet's top watchdog group for writers, Preditors & Editors.
