What Clients Say


I sent in my graphic novel script to make sure I was portraying my nonbinary, trans and autistic characters well. Ravi was very encouraging and had a lot of warm words for my work as well as offering some gentle editing criticism. I couldn’t have been happier with my experience. I feel like I got a great value for the price, the staff made the process very transparent and everyone I interacted with was really lovely.


I had an excellent experience with Salt & Sage, who assigned me a fantastic editor to complete a sensitivity read for a genderfluid character in my MG fantasy novel. Ravi was thoughtful, kind and extremely helpful when working through my script. Their report was comprehensive and I will be taking their points on board in my rewrite.
