I am Tia Ross,

a creative information architect and pro organizer who structures ideas and content and applies technical solutions, style and know-how to bring vision to life.

I'm also a polymath...

which has always made it hard to quickly summarize what I do.

EMBRACE versatility.

What does a polymath do when she can't choose between her myriad interests, talents, and skills?

Dabble in them all, of course.

Project: Black Writers

Creating and attending events with others can create bonds that can either grow into something palpable and meaningful over time or they can wither and die. And when you are an event host, whether you’re asking people to travel around the States or the world with you, one of the most important components I’ve learned

What Clients Say About Me

Tia, you are such a blessing!! You’re the epitome of what building a village should look like in our community. 💜
E. Parker
Author, Editor & Book Coach
Any success that I’ve had as a writer/editor can be traced back to my first experience with Tia Ross. When I attended one of her conferences in Atlanta in 2000, it jump-started my writing career, and not just because of the inspiration, motivation, skills development and professional guidance it provided (and there was plenty of all of that)! The services Tia offers are so impeccably planned, well-organized and superbly executed, they set a standard of quality and excellence that I still aspire to–not only in my writing process, but also in my entrepreneurial endeavors and my life in general.
David McGoy

One of the most courageous things I’ve ever done is to allow others to play voyeur to my most private thoughts by memorializing them in a series of books. I knew that I would be selling myself short if I did not entrust my work to an editor with the integrity, experience, and professionalism to make a good writer a great one—an editor like “the” incomparable Tia Ross. I say the name with reverence because that is how the news was received when I made mention of Tia to one of the local bookstore owners who carry my books. Her stellar reputation precedes her.

Tia’s reliability, work ethic, and extraordinary skills as an editor are only surpassed by her generosity of spirit and her willingness to share her vast store of knowledge with others to ensure their success. I am a better writer because of her. Thank you, Tia, for your guidance. Thank you for sharing your resources. And thank you so very much for the fantastic job you do with my novels.

If you are a serious writer and want to elevate a good manuscript to a great one, you need the best editor in the industry. You need Tia Ross.

If I were to boil down my experience at writing functions run by Tia Ross to one word—beside “quality”—that word would have to be “efficient.” I’m a HUGE believer in not having my time wasted, so having been to other conferences previously with events scheduled to start at 9AM that didn’t begin until 9:35, making you late to another event you wanted to attend, I was very appreciative that that wasn’t the case at her events. Couple that with the programs themselves that were well run, of interest and chock full of helpful information, I can say it was a great return on my investment. I left feeling well-equipped to taking my writing to the next level as attendees are given plenty of information and resources. Now what you do with all that is on you, but you certainly walk away with the tools to make it happen!
Askia Farrell
Having attended a number of events managed by Tia Ross, I’ve learned that she is a master at pulling together the components of a successful event and program. Her events are enlightening, engaging and fun! I am impressed by the way the events are organized and executed to meet the expectations of those in attendance. This includes the choice of venue, quality of speakers, agenda, and the attention to detail that her staff provides, and I’m looking forward to attending her future events.
