One thing that separates The Editorial Department from others in the field is our commitment to helping writers find literary representation at the conclusion of the writing and revision process. We have assisted hundreds of authors with this over the years (you’ll find a list of agents and publishers handling our clients’ work here ), and many fine books have been traditionally published as a result—including several national bestsellers.
What to Expect
Our traditional publishing support program gives you feedback and guidance from experienced literary agents, editors, and pitch writing specialists who understand the demands of the market and specialize in crafting pitch materials that get results.
The exact process and consultant you work may vary based on your own specific needs, but the process can include:
The caveat, of course, is that the support we offer here is intended for works that realize a suitably high standard of quality and attention to authorial craft. The best query letter in the world won’t get you very far if your manuscript doesn’t deliver on the promises of its pitch. This is why anyone working with us at this stage can expect our utmost candor in assessing a work’s readiness for publication and constructive guidance if needed in addressing any challenges or shortcomings.
While we can’t guarantee that working with The Editorial Department will land you an agent or publisher, we can significantly improve your odds of success.
