The goal of my website is to encourage Lutherans to write, but all the long acknowledgements in the front of your favorite books testify that it often takes more than one person to produce a book. Sometimes you need the resources of a publisher or professional freelance writer support.
If you are looking for help, particularly in a professional capacity, here is a list of Lutheran professionals who provide freelance Lutheran writing support: proofreaders, editors, illustrators, indexers, graphic designers, and writing coaches. (Obviously, you can use non-Lutheran ones, too, but we may as well highlight Lutheran professionals in a Lutheran market.)
NB: These are professionals, not volunteers!
Am I missing something or someone? Please do drop me a note. Meanwhile, I hope you can join me in helping people connect with those they need in whatever way you can!
You know what else you can do? Spread the idea of Lutheran novelists, poets, hymnists, proofreaders, editors and more. Embrace the clear expressions of vocation in Lutheranism and throw in a love for reading and writing along with it! Give some of their books as gifts. Consider donating books to your local library and, even better, write something yourself!
