Consulting Services for Aspiring Writers(No complete manuscript)
PQLS has long extended its consulting services to writers specifically recommended by our associates and colleagues. PQLS has found that having a literary consultant prior to completion of a first draft leads to a better, more complete manuscript that requires fewer revisions to be submission ready. PQLS is pleased to announce it is extending these services to the general public.

Many of our associates have experience in the legal and consulting world and have always questioned the value of a flat hourly billing rate. PQLS has therefore combined its consulting services into consumer-friendly packages based on the needs of the writer. These services include dial-in conferences about your work, writing schedule formulation, writing exercises and review, partial draft review, techniques to eliminate writer’s block, concept design and brainstorming sessions.
