Welcome Portland Writers Group

Mark ChimskyDear Members of the Portland Writers Group,

Welcome to my website!  As an editorial consultant with extensive publishing experience, I would be happy to help you give your manuscript or book proposal its best chance for success.  Check out the Services for Writers I offer and the Writing Tips & Quotes (see the Menu at right).

It was a pleasure speaking at your group meeting at The Think Tank in Portland.  As a special offer to you for signing up on my site, you will receive:

* The audio of my presentation at The Think Tank on “writing and the business of getting published” (play/click below)

  • By the way, in my talk, the publishing term, “blad,” stands for “book layout and design.”
