About Sixth Element

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!

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.
