What we edit

Narwhal specializes in science fiction and fantasy for adults and young adults (YA fiction), but we have experience in many genres and can edit any kind of fiction.

We work with writers at all levels of experience but have a particular love for mentoring new writers.

We have no problem with controversial or explicit subject matter, a good horror yarn, alternative lifestyle and GLBT themes, and experimental fiction…worthwhile writing, like life, comes in all kinds of flavors.

We do not, though, work with manuscripts that include excessive and gratuitous (in our opinion) violence or promote misogyny or racism.
