Sixth Element Publishing is a creative and dynamic design and publishing partnership based in the North East of England. We love books, we make books, we write books, we help other writers write books!
Established in 2009, we have a clear philosophy on indie publishing – we’re happy to help, we charge for our time and all our authors retain all the rights to their books.
Our publishing services for authors include mentoring, editing, proofreading, typesetting, cover design, print, distribution and promotion.
We also offer a full range of design and print services, website design and hosting, and the design and production of signage and exhibition stuff. We’ve made music videos, published our own magazines and newspapers, and we screen-print tee shirts. We also host the odd art exhibition here and there.
