Tapping our close associations with local literary, cultural and educational institutions as well as publishers, translators and editors, the Singapore Writers Centre can connect you with the right people for the following services:
1. General enquiries
Aspiring writers who feel lost in the ostensibly bleak plains of the publishing field can now count on a sympathetic presence to provide practical advice and an insider's take on the matter. The Singapore Writers Centre would be glad to render our assistance to answer the many enquiries that budding writers might have regarding the tricks of the trade. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Editorial services such as proofreading and editing
5. Manuscript evaluation
6. Legal advice/Contract review
Please note that the fee for these services will differ depending on the length, amount of work required, and genre of the work concerned. It will also be dependent on your negotiation with the publishing professionals rendering these services. The Singapore Writers Centre does not in any way partake in the payment involved. To find the right people for your writing and publishing needs, please write to us at email@example.com
