Proofreading

$5 per thousand words (USD)

The most basic form of editing, a Proofread will see us correcting commonplace errors in your manuscript, in regards to grammatical mistakes and punctuational mishaps. This basic edit will use the human eye to ensure your manuscript has a little bit more bloom by erasing many of those errors that make readers scoff.

  • Editing for punctuation & grammar

Copyediting

In addition to correcting grammatical and punctuational errors, a Copyedit will review your manuscript for continuity errors and will ensure consistency of formatting throughout. Awkward sentences will be brought to your attention, and we will provide suggestions to rewrite any weak, confusing or convoluted segments in your manuscript. In addition, we will also prepare suitable front and back matter if applicable, at no extra charge.

Copyediting includes the following:

  • Editing for punctuation & grammar
  • Editing for continuity & consistency
  • Editing for complicated syntax & style
  • Front Matter (Title, Copyright, Dedication, Contents, etc)

We will liaise with you significantly before proceeding with a Manuscript Evaluation.
