SAWN Writing Consulting Service offers more than a collection of recommended solutions; as full-time language specialists and published authors our team carries out most of the specialized projects , such as a proposal, synopsis, critique, review, press release, articles, interview and self-promotion, on your behalf. We also provide step-by-step guidelines to help you develop successful methodologies, solve unfamiliar problems, plan a marketing campaign aimed at select target audiences, boost your writing productivity to stay on track, meet deadlines, and remain motivated.

Written work worthy of publication for the retail consumer market [or for in-house circulation among employees, suppliers or customers] is a collective effort that writers, editors, writing consultants, literary agents, graphic designers and publishers engage in together. Emerging writers and established authors alike benefit from having their work reviewed by different sets of eyes. It is often difficult for a writer to review their own work critically.
