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 is the oldest and one of the best respected author-services firms in the country, with a 32-year track record of turning promising manuscripts into successfully published books.
We have 15 editors and consultants on staff, many of whom are seasoned veterans of the traditional publishing scene and uniquely qualified to help authors publish traditionally or independently to the highest standard possible. We also have a talented team of cover artists, book designers, and e-book formatting specialists and a full menu of support services for authors who wish to self-publish.
Our clients include several NY Times bestselling authors and range from writers seeking publication for the first time to published authors looking to take their careers to the next level. Our unique approach to helping writers reach their goals and become successful has earned us feature coverage from The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, Writers Digest, and also "recommended" status by the Internet's top watchdog group for writers, Preditors & Editors.
