Welcome to Writers Services


We're delighted to welcome you to WritersServices' spectacular new site. We've been going since 2001, which is why we have more than 5,000 pages of advice, information and services in our online knowledge bank. When we started, writers were focused on finding a publisher, now you might equally well be intending to self-publish or to publish online.

We have expanded our services accordingly and our range of 19 services is listed on our Services page. The website allows us to deliver the services of experienced professional editors, linked together in a freelance network. As well as a full range of Reports, Editing, a Submission Critique and Contract vetting, we also offer a Copy editing service, Scriptwriting assessment and our Children's Editorial Services. You can commission us to write your Blurb or Synopsis, or to Type your book if it's in paper or audio form. If you are not a native English speaker, our Manuscript Polishing service will help you get your English up to scratch. We've recently launched a Poetry Critique service and PhD Editing. More new services will be launched shortly.

If you commission a report and the editor reports favourably on your manuscript, we're happy to recommend you to an agent.

Alternatively, if you've decided to self-publish, we can guide you through the process so that you end up with the book you want. Using print on demand services, we can produce just one copy, a limited edition, or thousands of copies, as well as enabling you to sell your own book directly and to have it on sale internationally or as an ebook.

Our Resources provide a vast amount of essential information for writers, including the 10-part Inside Publishing series, Michael Legat's Factsheets and reviews of books for writers, hundreds of which can be found in our Bookstall. We review relevant websites and offer hundreds of links which are of special interest to writers.

Our international Agents' listings are freely available, so browse through them to decide who to submit your work to.

Our special pages for writers - over 60 at last count - can be found through links from Advice for Writers. Help for writers gives an even wider range of what's available on the site.

To keep up to date with the rapidly changing world of publishing and find out about all the opportunities available to writers, just drop in on the site. What's New is our weekly update and the Magazine gives a monthly overview.
