Brown Study is a thought initiative that aims to produce value through words. To us, the old expression, 'falling into a brown study', describes the optimum state of deep thoughtfulness for an artist, a writer – a reverie from where creativity sparks.

I am Avani Pandya, the founding editor at Brown Study. I write as well – fiction and a bit of poetry. I founded Brown Study in 2015, with the purpose of entering the Indian editing space with sentence-level expertise to help writers hone their craft and tell their stories. Whether you're a newbie working on your early drafts or you're a seasoned author doling out your twelfth novel, I am excited to read your work, work together, and match your writing talent with my editorial prowess.

Our services are catered to poets, writers of fiction and narrative non-fiction, mainstream publishing houses, and anyone who relies on compelling words to tell their stories and make an impact.

MEET AVANI

Fiction writer, editor, and art-lover.

With an academic and professional background in literature, applied linguistics and journalism, and over 12 years of experience in the industry, I have my toes sunk deep into the world of publishing. Apart from editing, I write fiction, narrative non-fiction, and poetry.

I sketch and read for pleasure. Playing the ukulele (albeit poorly) is another one of my shticks.

I'm a member of ACES: The Society for Editing (American Copyeditors Society) and ICF (Indian Copyeditors Forum).
