Advice on printing


We have enlisted the help of a number of distinguished writers and publishing figures to develop our Writers' Resources. This part of the site has become a massive resource base for writers.

Michael Legat's Factsheets

A former publisher, novelist and author of twelve books on writing, Michael Legat has produced for WritersServices a series of specially commissioned information-packed factsheets, which cover the essentials for writers.

Inside Publishing

A series of nineteen articles written by Chris Holifield, which explains the inside workings of the publishing business.

Getting Published

Writers Services Self-publishing offers a print on demand design and production service and a marketing service. This collection of forty-five articles explains how to prepare, publish and market a book. It includes many of the legal as well as the technical aspects of publication.

Health Hazards

Writer's cramp and eye problems plagued writers of previous generations. As writers now spend a lot of time at their computer there are new risks, which this series investigates.


Our page of links to Advice for Writers is a good way to access a lot of information on the site.
