Our Proof-Reading Service

Get your manuscript proof-read by a professional editor

As with all our other editing services, proof-reading is undertaken by our most experienced writers.  It provides you with the lightest form of text-correction, dealing mainly with typos, spellings and punctuation errors. 

This service is most suitable for writers who are self-publishing, if your text is already clean. But it’s not generally recommended if you’re seeking traditional publication, since the publishers will take care of proofreading themselves.

Frequently asked
questions

1

How long will it take to match my manuscript with an editor?

We aim to match you with the right editor within 2-4 days. We’ll get back to you as soon as the choice has been confirmed.

2

Can I choose my editor?

If you have a particular editor in mind, we will of course do our best to match you with them. We cannot guarantee this, however, as all of our editors are freelance and there are times when they are unavailable due to demand and/or other commitments.

Once you have placed your order, you’re welcome to send a shortlist of 4-5 editors from our website (and we’lll do our best to place you with your preferred editors.

3

Will my manuscript be flawless? 

Probably not. A realistic outcome is that your text will be very clean, but not perfect. In our experience, this standard will be easily sufficient for self-publishing or submission to traditional outlets.

4

What if my work needs more attention than the service-level I’ve paid? 

In that situation, we’ll tell you. We’re here to make your work better, and we’ll be candid and truthful about what we think you need.  

5

Will my copy-editor respect my own personal style and voice? 

Yes.  That’s very important to us. As writers ourselves, we know that we can’t just impose a house style on your prose and expect that to be okay.
