• Publication Assistance Services

    When you’re ready to publish your book, our publication assistance services will help you get there.

    Position yourself for traditional publication or self-publication, seek representation by a literary agent, submit your work to magazines and journals, or pursue hybrid publication through our partnership with Atmosphere Press.

    You’ve done the hard part — now let WriteByNight handle some of the rest.


    Total Pitch Package

    Send us your finished manuscript and we’ll do everything else. And we do mean everything.

    With a total pitch package, WriteByNight will read your book, identify agents and presses to send it to, write your query letter and book proposal from scratch, and line edit and proofread your sample pages.

    We’ll then submit these finished materials on your behalf, and handle all ensuing correspondence, using a dedicated email address we’ve created.

    Be as involved or uninvolved in the process as you’d like.

    Publication Consultation

    Submit your novel, young adult novel, memoir, or any other writing project for professional review in order to determine which path to publication (traditional, hybrid, or self-publication) is right for you.

    We’ll read your manuscript carefully and meet with you to discuss our impressions of the work and its prospects for publication, including feedback on areas of craft that warrant attention. You’ll also exchange ideas with your consultant and plan a course of action towards publication.
