Our Copyediting Service

What Our Copyediting Service offers

Our copyediting service puts the final shine on your manuscript and prepares it for public consumption, whether through self-publication or submission to an agent or traditional publisher. A copyeditor will go through your entire manuscript, line by line, and check for:

  • Grammatical errors 
  • Punctuation  
  • Point of view slips 
  • Use of language 
  • Confusing transitions 
  • Repetitions 
  • Consistency of tenses
  • Spelling and typos 

Who Our Copyediting Service Is For

The copyediting service is reserved for the final stage of the writing process, after a writer is sure that the structure, character arcs, setting and other elements of the story are all firmly in place, and that no major rewrites will be required. This service is suitable for you as a writer if you:

  • Have written and rewritten your  manuscript and  believe it is ready for that final polish.
  • Are sure that the structure, character arcs and all other elements are firmly in place, with no major rewrite required.
