Cornerstones is the #1 transatlantic literary consultancy. We are the writer’s friend, and we believe your story matters. Come and share your story with us!
Whether you’re on your first draft or are ready to submit, writing a book doesn’t have to be a lonely journey. Our editors are agented and published writers, senior agents and acquiring editors at major publishing houses. We offer a range of editorial services including thorough manuscript assessments and intensive mentoring. We also act as scouts for agents. We’re writers too, and believe in sharing our knowledge with you. Why not start right now with an initial consultation at no charge of your synopsis and first 10 pages?
In 2018, we launched our online self-editing course, Edit Your Novel, based on On Editing: How to Edit Your Novel the Professional Way by Helen Corner-Bryant and Kathryn Price (John Murray, May 2018). Apply now!
Above you’ll see the view from Cornerstones international headquarters, in beautiful Dorset by the sea, and below are examples of books by authors who have come through Cornerstones: some we’ve edited, and some we’ve seen through to the agent and publication stage.
“From the first point of contact with the Cornerstones team and right through to being assigned an editor I was struck by the sensitive intelligence of your wonderful team who listened and recognised exactly what was needed. I quickly realised I could trust the process completely. You assigned me an editor who, with her skill and insight, has shown me how to deliver at a whole new level of potential. I could not be more grateful.”
