Editorial Services for Publishers and Authors

Gropen Associates hosts this directory as a free service to the community. We hope it helps you find just the professional you need!

We don't provide any of the services below.

Please do ask us about any financial or operational problems. We provide advice to publishers on an inexpensive "question-by-question" basis. We also offer software packages, helping you tackle common issues independently.

Contact us for assistance whenever you face a difficult situation. If it's not Marion's area of expertise, she probably knows who does cover it!
