The Coretext Difference

Since its inception in 2002, Coretext has established a reputation as a trustworthy source of reliable information based on our expertise in knowledge-raising and an ability to tailor technical material for both specialist and lay readerships.
Our print, electronic and digital publishing success is achieved through a rigorous process of client and stakeholder consultation, content development, in-depth research and interviews, and meticulous editing. Inspirational photography and design leads readers to the words; the words lead readers to knowledge.
We engage the authors we represent in a professional writer/editor relationship based on mutual responsibility and understanding. At Coretext, we do not remove the author from the publishing process; we liaise with them every step of the way.
