As a book editor, I edit and evaluate manuscripts, demystify the publishing industry and process, and mentor budding writers and editors. My editing philosophy: to help authors reach the best version of their manuscript while staying true to the essence of their book, their unique voice, and writing style.
I have 6+ years of editorial experience and am member of the Women’s Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (WICCI), Maharashtra – Print Media Council. I have a Certificate in Book Publishing from Humber College, Canada and have interned at Zubaan Books in India and Simon and Schuster Canada.
With structural, line and copy edits, I help writers reach the best version of their manuscript and get it ready to publish.
I provide a detailed review to help writers identify their strengths, weaknesses and the loopholes in the WIPs.
Teaching and Mentoring
I offer personalized mentorships and workshops to help writers and editors upskill themselves and build their portfolio.
I provide guidance on how, where, when, and who to pitch and if the work is suitable for other formats like audio or OTT.
The Book People
Is marketing essential to the success of a book? How much money do authors actually make? Is audio the next big opportunity for writers in India?
I demystify Indian publishing in a pathbreaking podcast and video series, The Book People. Through conversations with industry experts and disruptors, I bust myths and identify the biggest opportunities for writers in India today.
I am the founder and editor-in-chief of ang(st).
Started in April 2019, ang(st) explores the physicality of feminism — our relationships with our bodies, with society, and with other bodies. This is a space for marginalized voices and identities: BIPOC, LGBTQ+, differently abled, and other underrepresented feminist voices. We publish prose, poetry, visual art, and hybrid pieces.
