Editorial Services

These are general overviews of the services we provide; for a more in-depth look, click the link associated with the service.

Substantive editing: This is more useful for short stories and nonfiction, as we look for any information that may be missing, point out information that may be unnecessary, and suggest ways to optimize flow.

Mechanical editing: This is useful for any type of writing—it ensures consistency of spellings, abbreviations, and an overall writing style (such as MLA, APA, or Chicago) if applicable.

Proofreading: This is useful for any form of writing, regardless of how (in)complete a piece may be, as it looks for any general mistakes with punctuation, grammar, or spelling.
