Writing Services


I undertake writing assignments in the following beats (among others):
- Opinion 
- Humour
- Parenting
- Social Issues
- Literature/Art
- Creative Writing/Short Stories

I am open to writing assignments as specific commissions, periodical/regular columns or other flexible arrangements.


Book Reviews

I provide commissioned review services for books as an independent book reviewer. All genres are welcome.

Why me?

With an academic background in English Literature I have been exposed to writings from across the world, been a part of multiple literary societies and discussions and earned accolades for my papers/critiques. I have been an in-house book reviewer with the 'Hindustan Times' with my own column in a supplement. I feel I approach books as an evolved reader and enjoy understanding not just the books but the minds behind the books too.

My reviews

My reviews are written for prospective readers of the books as well as for their authors. The book reviews are detailed, literary (wherever relevant) and without any bias or prejudice. I do not star rate books on my blog for I find that form of rating vague and often confusing. The reviews balance the 'good' and the 'bad', are constructive in aim and honest in intent. No populist format of reviewing is followed. The opinion is always my own.

You may visit 'Book Reviews' to read some of them. You can read some testimonials here.


Beta Reading & Literary Critiques

I provide editorial consultancy for authors. I beta-read finished manuscripts from the perspective of a reader and critique them from that of a literary critic. Many manuscripts that I helped authors with have been published by well-known publishing houses. 

Why me?

I feel qualified to provide the type of feedback necessary to make improvements to a manuscript, both because of my academic background as well as nearly three years of author hand-holding.

My methodology

I provide constructive criticism about characterisation, dialogue, flow, language, plot, closures, story inconsistencies, and so on. The aim is to critique even as we derive a synopsis and a pitch from and for the manuscript. I do not attempt to re-write the book, or try to change the author's voice. 

Copy editing and proof reading are separate from Beta Reading and are charged accordingly.
