Academic Writing Consultants

Academic Writing Consultants
specializes in helping students develop their academic projects from conception to completion. We provide attentive, precise and in-depth developmental editing of academic writing from book proposals to CVs to tenure and promotion documents. 

We also provide consulting services for academics approaching the  job market,  preparing to undergo the third-year review and tenure  process, and who want to learn how to write more effectively and with confidence. In addition to our consulting and editing services, Savant offers engaging, interactive, and results-oriented workshops. 



Online Workshops

The path to getting your book published begins with a good proposal. You may have a completed dissertation, a few rough book chapters, or even journal articles you’d like to transform into a coherent book project—but where do you start? Join Badia Ahad-Legardy, PhD for a workshop in which you will translate your research projects for a broader market, learn how to “sell” your book to academic presses, and have a completed book proposal ready to send to your preferred presses.

Part I
- Writing the Project Description (aka “the heart and soul of the proposal”)

Part II
- Developing Your Chapter Outlines: How to Shape Your “Story”


Part III - Know Your Market and Craft Your Market Analysis: How to Make Your Work “Sellable”


Part IV - Proposing Your Proposal: Choosing the Right Press and Getting Your Proposal into the Hands of an Editor

Four-week workshop will teach you how to translate your research projects for a broader market, learn how to “sell” your work to academic presses, and have a completed book proposal ready to send to your preferred presses. As part of this workshop, you will:


  • Receive individualized attention–the workshop is limited to 8 participants.
  • Have your proposal peer-reviewed during the workshop
  • Have your proposal professionally edited at the conclusion of the workshop
  • Develop an individual “publication plan” as part of one-on-one follow-up consultation

As a bonus, we will also have a live Q&A with the Editor-in-Chief of an esteemed university press where you can have all of your book publishing questions answered on the spot!

This workshop is also available as an on-campus workshop. For more information, please click here.

The cost of professional writing assistance is invaluable. The quality of service and individual attention you will receive from Academic Writing is above and beyond what any large and impersonal resume writing or copyediting service can offer. Savant Academic specializes in development editing–we think about the “big picture” as well as the small details. 

Each project includes a consultation before we begin your project and a follow-up consultation once the project is complete.  I will assist with revising and restructuring your documents, highlighting your strengths and minimizing your weaknesses, targeting your core audience, and ensuring consistency of spelling, tone, grammar, and usage.


Editing/Consulting is EUR 75/hr–please contact me for an estimate for your project
