We Are a team of editors, translators, writers, and scholars.

We offer developmental editing, translation, and mentoring for academic authors across the disciplines.

Our Specialties



We offer developmental editing services from guidance on revisions to substantive editing for scholars at any point in their career. We provide editorial support across a wide range of textual formats, disciplines, and genres for articles, monographs, textbooks, grant and book proposals, promotion and tenure materials, and public-facing writing.



We offer French-to-English and English-to-French translation services for academic and non-fiction texts. Our translation services include review, revision, editing, proofreading, with attention to genre and audience. We have experience with native and non-native speakers and writers.



As former academics, we understand the often-inflexible structural conditions that shape our publication and working lives and the institutional and professional norms that are often left unspoken. We provide guidance and support in all of these aspects, with special commitment to early career and first-generation scholars.
