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 global 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 editorial, mentoring, and publishing consultation services are catered to independent writers, publishing houses, non-profits, and anyone who relies on compelling words to tell their stories and make an impact.

Fiction writer, editor, and art-lover.

With an academic and professional background in literature, applied linguistics and journalism, and over 14 years of experience in the industry, I have my toes sunk deep into the world of publishing. Apart from editing, I write 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).
