Turnaround: 2-3 weeks

Proofreading services are available for those with a manuscript in need of a light review for basic errors and are typically obtained after a work has been professionally edited. It never hurts to do a final check!

Proofreading services may also be beneficial for those who have manually entered their editorial changes into a new document (as this can generate typographical errors) or for those who have had their work extensively edited. Often, extensive edits require a proofread or basic edit in order to determine that marked changes have been properly made.

Proofreading includes a line edit of the following:

    • Typographical errors
    • Misspelled words
    • Punctuation
    • Incorrect usage (effect/affect)

Proofreading will rarely review a manuscript for content organization, sentence structuring, clarity, word choice, or style. If you feel that your manuscript may need a more substantive edit, please choose from the Basic, Moderate, and Extensive services available.  If you aren’t sure which service level you need, our editors will be happy to review your work and offer a recommendation.

Free Sample Edit!

We will provide you with a free sample edit and quote so that you can get a feel for the editor and what they can do for your work. This will help you to make sure the editor is the right fit for you. Editing quotes will include total job fee, turnaround, and possible start dates. (There is no obligation to purchase a service.)
