• So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.

The road to a final, polished manuscript can be long and arduous. We have the experience to help you on your journey. Unlike many editorial services, we approach manuscripts with both an editor’s and a writer’s eye. We ask hard questions: will this work as a book? Will publishers and other readers read past the first page? Is there enough narrative impetus to propel them beyond that first page?

With over thirty years combined experience in publishing, editing, and writing, the editors at Randolph Lundine approach each project with a critical and professional sensibility. We have worked on a variety of book projects, including trade and scholarly manuscripts.

Heather Lundine worked as an acquisitions editor and editor-in-chief at one of the country’s largest university presses. Her acquisition work focused on trade nonfiction, history, academic monographs, and food writing.

Ladette Randolph is an award-winning writer and a former acquisitions editor and director of one of the country’s largest university presses. She currently edits one of the nation’s premier literary journals. Her acquisition work focused on fiction, memoir, creative nonfiction, and scholarly humanities works.

Sherrie Flick is the award-winning author of a novel and three short story collections. Her fiction and nonfiction writing have also appeared in numerous anthologies and journals, including W.W. Norton's New Sudden FictionPloughshares, Creative Nonfiction, and The Wall Street Journal. She teaches in the MFA and Food Studies departments at Chatham University. 

Laura Furman is the author of two novels, including Tuxedo Park; four story collections, including The Mother Who Stayed; and a memoir, Ordinary Paradise, and she was awarded fellowships for her fiction from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. She was the founding editor of American Short Fiction. From 2003-2019, she was series editor of The O. Henry Prize Stories. She is professor emerita in the English Department of the University of Texas at Austin, where she taught writing for over 20 years.
