About Us

The celebrated author Flannery O’Connor once said, “The isolated imagination is easily corrupted by theory, but the writer inside his community seldom has such a problem.” 

And this, in a nutshell, is who we are! A haven for your imagination. A coven of creators, where we
nurture creativity by focusing on the collective learning and growth of all our members.

Our primary goal is to create a sustainable virtual space where writers and readers support each
other and build a wholesome community that cherishes literature. We extend publishing services for authors to make their transition smooth into the publishing world.

Vision

To make Penmancy a springboard for new writers. By providing a plethora of editing and publishing services, we intend to make your publishing dreams into a reality.

Mission

To create a community where writers and readers come together to revel in the wonder of the written word.

What We Do?

Completing a manuscript is an uphill task. If only the troubles stopped at 'The End'. Annoyingly, they are just getting started!

Who will tell you whether the 'Zero Draft' even makes sense? How to edit? Publishing, cover design, book trailers and the beastly pre- and post-publication marketing?!
This is where we come in. We extend publishing services for authors to make their transition into the publishing world as smooth as can be! Our services include:

  • Editing Services & Manuscript Appraisal
  • Proofreading/beta-reading
  • Soft marketing
  • Book trailers & Book covers

Our Team

Author C.B. Cook once said, “On our own, we are marshmallows and dried spaghetti, but together we can become something bigger.”
No battle can ever be won single handedly and that's why it is our team that makes us who we are and never the other way around!

Penmancy is a coven of creative characters who are fascinated with the magic of the pen to weave new worlds with words. We offer:

  • a global platform for passionate amateur and aspiring writers like you to showcase your work in the form of short stories, novellas, poems, plays, essays, writing tips and everything else related to the art of the written word
  • complete guidance and consultation through your writing journey
  • a writers’ group where you can exercise your writing skills and abilities by taking part in our monthly events and gain feedback, appreciation and criticism from a growing audience of fellow authors and readers.
  • a non-judgemental space for writers to bounce off ideas, book recommendations and writing tips.

One of our main goals is to create a virtual space where writers and readers support each other and build a wholesome community that cherishes literature.

We also extend publishing services for upcoming authors to make their transition smooth into the publishing world.
