We help people write books

The Republic of Letters offers a variety of editing services. Whether you have a full manuscript or are just sketching ideas, we do everything from polish to inspire. 


A book can be(come) an unwieldy thing,

we'll help you manage it. It's our thing.


We offer our enchanting space to host writing and author events. If you're a local author and you wish to hold a book launch or a reading, please contact us
