Our vision for The Editor Garden is to provide a process that encompasses the entirety of book development while supporting the writer’s creative spirit at every stage. We value a team approach to editing, long-term relationships based on respect and trust, writing and publishing as a process, the writer’s unique voice and creative vision, diversity and honoring individual experiences, and fair business practices in a supportive work environment.
At whatever stage of the Flourish Process you enter The Editor Garden, our proven process always begins with a simple survey to understand your writing and book goals and your editing style. We are committed to cultivating strong client-editor relationships. We listen to our clients and work hard to support them by providing the best editor fit available.
