For many projects, we collaborate with our own network of freelancers from various backgrounds who have extensive experience writing higher education materials across a number of disciplines.  Oftentimes, we work in tandem with textbook authors, in-house development editors, and publisher-hired freelancers and reviewers.  


We will gladly work on one portion of a project or direct it from conception to turnover - be it with publisher-provided authors or our own network of freelancers.  We work with each client to tailor our services to the time frame and budgetary needs of each project.
