Got Questions?

Got questions about our proofreading, copy editing and wordsmithing abilities? Never fear – we’ve got answers!


Can you edit my...

We’ve edited thousands of documents, from medical journal articles, to application essays, to award-winning novels, to business proposals. What they have in common is strong, clear writing; the power to tell a powerful story. Our experienced editors are familiar with a variety of disciplines… whether it’s technical jargon, poetry, suspense or research documentation, we’ll make sure your document meets the required standards and formats, while helping the writing stand out.

How experienced are you guys?

We work with a tight group of highly educated, native speaking editors. Many of us have post-grad degrees, business and sales experience, and published books to our name. We all have at least several years’ experience editing, have taken extensive training, and have passed editing and proofreading tests to become qualified. That said, I’ve found that a long list of credentials is no guarantee of a good editor. The best way to know for sure, is to send us a sample and see what we can do.

How do I send my paper?

After checking out our pricing, you can go straight to our submissions page to get started. Step 1 is sending a secure payment through PayPal.com or bank transfer, and Step 2 is uploading your paper using our online form. If you have any problems, just upload your paper via our ‘free trial page’ and we will send you an invoice.

How much does it cost?

We charge 3 cents per word, which works out to about $7.50 per page (average page is 250 words). However, longer documents can get as much as 40% off our standard rates, making it just 1.8 cents per word. If you have a bunch of short documents, you can buy in bulk, and send us documents directly until you’ve used up your balance.

How long will it take?

Our average turnaround time is 48 hours, although we’re often faster. If you need something edited right away, write us and see if we’re free. On the other hand, longer manuscripts, books, theses or dissertations can take about 2 weeks.

Will you preserve my writing style?

We will certainly try – but we will also try to help your words get out of the way of your story. Great writing is carefully pruned, using excellent words sparingly, rather than an overflow of pretty images, adjective and adverbs. Sometimes writers try to do too much, make too many analogies and metaphors, and the story can get lost. We’ll take what you have and make it as good as we can. (On the other hand, some of our fixes may be a matter of style preference. If you don’t agree with our changes or comments, you don’t have to use it; or if you ask, we can help you come up with something better.).

Are there any discounts?

If you have something to trade or barter, or if you have a set budget, you’re welcome to write to us. Linking to our website (especially from a PR3 and above site), or writing articles for us on related topics, or putting up posters or postcards around your school or university can all earn you a discount. The maximum discount is about $100 off. You can also pay in installments if it’s easier, half now, half later, or 1/3 at a time.

Can you help me get published?

We’ve worked with hundreds of authors. While we’re not a publishing company, we are insiders in the indie and self-publishing industry, and we can certainly give you excellent advice and point you in the right direction. We’ve also set up some special bonuses that are crucial for marketing success and book sales. Check them out on the authors page.
