About Our Services

At Needle In The Hay we are all about the writers, in fact, we're all writers ourselves.

For some of us, writing is a hobby, a creative outlet, a way of expressing ourselves. For others, it's a part or full time career. We don't know if there's any right way to 'do writing', but we do know that writing is a rewarding pursuit anyone can enjoy.

That doesn't mean writing is without its struggles. Our services are designed to help steer you in the right direction. From straightforward online courses to editing and manuscript writing services, you'll find most of what you need here at NiTH. So take a look below and see what we have!
