I am an independent international publishing consultant and columnist, based in New Delhi. As a publishing consultant I work professionally on projects related to the world of publishing, literature, books and as a literary consultant to schools. These projects can range from specially commissioned strategic papers, in-depth reports and analysis to social media strategy; offering professional expertise on publishing to individuals, firms and startups; and curation of literary events. I also mentor authors, evaluate and edit manuscripts and do one-to-one sessions with authors. Email: jayabhattacharjirose1 at gmail dot com
