Turnaround time negotiable | Pricing varies

Typographical flaws, spelling errors, missed punctuation... issues like these lower the quality of your writing (and therefore your credibility), whether it is a manuscript, website copy, correspondence, or other professional work. Proofreading ensures that your final draft is error-free, and covers punctuation, formatting, spelling, mechanical, and other technical issues in your document of any length.

Editing a manuscript goes beyond proofreading it for technical errors. Having your work edited can help to uncover and address structural issues, improve vocabulary and tone, identify contradictory or confusing elements, and significantly upgrade your writing quality. This service is ideal when you're looking for commentary, feedback, and recommendations to improve your writing project.
