View a Sample of Our Editing and Proofreading

Our two-round editing process is tailored to your unique requirements as a fiction writer.

In the first round of editing, your editor meticulously proofreads your short story, to ensure it is free of any errors in the grammar, spelling, punctuation, typography, and consistency. The editor also uses the first round as an opportunity to carefully read your story and understand your characters, plot structure, writing style, and more, as a preparation for the second round of editing.

In the second round, your editor refines the clarity, flow, sentence structure, diction, and coherence of your work, always bringing out your unique writing style. The editor makes detailed comments to give you constructive feedback on your characterisation, tone, dialogue, plot development, pacing, and more. In the final step, your editor rechecks your entire short story to eliminate any lingering proofreading errors.

We then deliver your polished, beautifully edited short story!

Meet Some Of Our Editors

Editing fiction manuscripts is her forte – from urban fiction novels to historical drama screenplays, she has experience with a range of genres. She loves helping writers to fully realize their ideas and give them an effective form.

When she's not editing, Rebecca is covered in ink, doodling, or in flour, baking.

Screenplays, short stories, and literary journalism are her key areas of expertise, and she enjoys applying her knowledge of literary criticism and film theory to help writers shape powerful manuscripts. Writers often appreciate her detailed feedback on the tone, plot structure, and character development.

In her free time, Meg learns and performs classical piano.
Aster
Aster graduated in computer engineering, but later chose to build a career doing what she had always wanted: making writing error-free and meaningful.

From recipe books to scientific studies, Aster has edited a wide range of non-fiction manuscripts. She enjoys helping writers frame compelling and well-structured arguments, bringing out their expertise on the topic.

Off work, Aster loves exploring music of every kind, from jazz to EDM.
