Marc Berley is founding editor of LitMag and Publisher of Bard Books. Privately he provides consulting and literary services for writers who want to make their work as good as it can be.

“I offer manuscript consultation of various kinds, from short form to long, from a story to novel — from conceptual editing and line editing to revision and re-writing. Tell me about your project; and paste a page or two. Please use the Contact page. I will get back to you if I think there is a good fit.

– Marc Berley

“The best editor at marshalling assets and selling books I ever saw was Alfred A. Knopf’s Robert Gottlieb. The best textual editor I have ever encountered is Marc Berley.”

– Gordon Lish, former fiction editor of Esquire, editor at Alfred A. Knopf, and founding editor of The Quarterly (Random House), author of Dear Mr. Capote, Peru and many other books, including, most recently, To Have Written a Book and Annals and Indices.
