About

Ink for blood…

Irena Joannides, Atalanta Creative’s principal writer/editor, comes from a line of bookworms but would’ve much preferred Hollywood royalty. Her father is internationally-renowned author, her mother a writer for radio, her aunt a poet, her brother a publisher, her granduncle a print shop owner.  

To cut a life-long story short, she started sharpening her pencil in pigtails. Fast-forward   years and unknown number of publishing credits later (Irena lost track and, if you don’t believe us, just google her name), Atalanta Creative was formed. It was named after the formidable Argonaut and her grandmother, an avid reader.

Atalanta Creative has been providing publication support to publishers, authors, organizations, and businesses around the world for more than fifteen years. While all work is still overseen by Irena, the talent pool has expanded to other editors, translators, illustrators, graphic artists, e-book specialists, etc. 

We offer:

  • Editing and writing services 
  • Book and magazine layout services
