Individual Consult Group

at the Attic Institute

We're iike you, and we know that a writing coach or editor or literary trainer who is on your side is essential. Since 1999, we've worked with thousands of writers to make the Attic Institute a haven for creativity and literary success. From that experience, we know that just as actors need directors, orchestras need conductors, and painters need dealers, so it is too that writers need editors, agents, and publishers.

We make the process of getting one-on-one consults easy and, just as important, productive. We help you organize your wriiting project, prioritize your literary goals, and strategize for success with a specifically-selected member of the ICG based on your literary ambitions, interests, manuscript, and needs.

To get started, it only takes a quick e-mail.

Tell us about your writing situation, and we'll help you plot a way forward from first draft onward toward publication.
