Our Brain Trust

No matter what phase of a project, we work closely as a team to develop ideas and provide feedback to make sure the book is developing as powerfully and effectively as possible.

The visionaries we work with are often busy, and can sometimes need a collaborative writer to make the writing process more easeful, joyful, and successful. Our team includes writers that have been selected from the country’s best writing programs, and we have worked closely in cultivating and developing their skills as collaborative writers. Unlike most literary agencies, we also have an editorial director and developmental editor as full time team members to help shape our projects.

Ultimately, our goal is to deliver a book to the publisher that reaches its ideal expression and inspires readers around the world.
