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.
The latest up on our blog:

Ask us about Waterline Writers, a monthly reading series held at the ever-green art gallery, Water Street Studios. Over the years Waterline Writers has earned a reputation as the Fox Valley’s premiere
reading series. The event features several writers
selected by submission, followed by an Open Mic. Readings are traditionally held in the main art gallery.
