Consulting Services

Consulting in the realms of writing and communication accelerate your journey to success. Whether it be for writing or publishing, Trivium Writing offers one-on-one consulting services tailored for your needs.

A light bulb dangling

Consulting is a multifaceted service that caters to the diverse needs of writers, authors, and organizations.

It encompasses a broad spectrum of expertise, ranging from manuscript development to navigating the publishing industry.

At its core, consulting aims to provide tailored guidance to enhance the quality and impact of written work.

When writers engage a consultant, they gain access to specialized knowledge in shaping and refining their manuscripts.

This process delves into the structure, style, and thematic coherence of the work.

What Consulting Is

Consulting primarily involves providing expert advice, solutions, and strategies.

In the writing and publishing industry, consultants offer specialized knowledge and insights. They assess a writer's work or a publishing project and provide recommendations based on their expertise and industry standards.

Consultants are usually brought in to address specific challenges or to help navigate complex situations. They might advise on the structure of a manuscript, suggest improvements for clarity and engagement, guide authors through the publishing process, or help develop a marketing strategy for a book.

The consultant's role is often directive and solution-oriented, focusing on providing answers and strategies.

What Consulting Is Not

Consulting is not the same as coaching.

Coaching is more so about guiding the individual to discover their own solutions. In writing and publishing, a coach doesn't necessarily provide direct answers or solutions.

The key differences between writing and coaching lie in the approach and the nature of the relationship:

  1. Expertise vs. Facilitation: Consultants bring specialized expertise and provide specific advice and solutions, while coaches facilitate personal or professional growth through guided self-discovery.

  2. Solutions vs. Development: Consulting is often solution-focused and project-specific, whereas coaching is development-focused, aimed at long-term personal or professional growth.

  3. Directive vs. Explorative: Consultants tend to have a more directive approach, offering answers and strategies, while coaches have an explorative approach, helping clients find their own answers.

  4. Scope: Consulting is usually centered around a specific issue or project, while coaching can encompass broader aspects of personal and professional development.

How Consulting Services Works

Consultants typically work on an hourly basis and will meet with you via phone or videoconference.

They will answer any and all questions you have about writing and publishing, so long as it is within their area of expertise. Sessions typically run for an hour and cover a variety of topics decided by the consultant and the client. 

With Trivium Writing, the first step is to schedule a free initial consultation. During this meeting, you'll discuss your project in detail and what your specific needs are and determine: 

  1. If consulting is right for you: you may, after all, benefit more from writing coaching or revision/editing.

  2. What you want to take away: you likely have specific outcomes you wish to achieve through consulting, so we need to get on the same page.

  3. What a plan of action should look like: consulting alone isn't enough if you don't have an action plan to achieve your writing goals. We'll help you create one!

Consulting is a fully customized experience and Trivium Writing excels at getting clients results through high-value writing consulting.

In a few sessions only, you could find yourself with ten times more clarity, confidence, and competence in your writing communication.

It is hard to overestimate the value of sharing your ideas with a communication professional and seeing these ideas reflected back to you even more clearly.


Why Use Consulting Services

Using consulting services in the realm of writing and publishing provides significant benefits.

Here are the key reasons why engaging these services can be invaluable:

  • Expert Guidance and Feedback: Writing and publishing consultants bring a wealth of expertise. Their insights can be crucial in refining a manuscript, enhancing its clarity, structure, and appeal. For publishing, their knowledge of the market can guide authors towards making informed decisions.

  • Objective Perspective: Consultants offer an outside, objective view of your work. This perspective is vital as it can identify strengths and weaknesses that the author might overlook. This unbiased feedback can significantly improve the quality of the writing and the strategy for publishing.

  • Navigating the Publishing Landscape: The publishing industry is notoriously complex and constantly evolving. Consultants keep abreast of current trends, market demands, and publishing options. Their guidance can help authors avoid common pitfalls and choose the best path for their work.

  • Time and Cost Efficiency: Consultants can save authors considerable time and effort. They can streamline the writing process, help avoid common mistakes, and provide strategies for efficient and effective publishing, ultimately saving costs in the long run.

  • Marketing and Promotion Strategies: Especially in publishing consulting, professionals offer valuable advice on marketing and promotion, an area often challenging for authors. They can help develop a solid marketing plan, suggest the most effective promotional tools, and identify marketing channels.

  • Personalized Support: Writing and publishing are not one-size-fits-all endeavors. Consultants provide personalized support tailored to the specific needs, goals, and style of the author. This individualized approach ensures that the guidance and strategies are effective for the author.

  • Skill Development: Beyond immediate project assistance, consulting services often contribute to the long-term development of writing and publishing skills. Authors can learn new techniques and strategies that can be applied to future projects.

  • Networking Opportunities: Consultants often have extensive networks within the writing and publishing industry. They can provide connections to editors, agents, publishers, and other authors, which can be invaluable for career growth and development.

  • Emotional and Motivational Support: Writing and publishing can be solitary and challenging journeys. A consultant can offer emotional and motivational support, helping authors maintain focus and momentum throughout the process.

  • Customized Strategies for Success: Each writer and project is unique, and consultants can help develop customized strategies that align with specific goals, whether it’s to produce a bestseller, build a brand, or effectively communicate a message to the intended audience.

Consulting services in writing and publishing provide comprehensive support, expertise, and guidance.

These are essential for navigating the complexities of the industry, enhancing the quality of the work, and achieving success in the literary world.
