• Editing & Proofreading

    (For content/developmental editing, see our beta reading, critique & writing workshop services.)

    To get your manuscript in shape for publication, WriteByNight will edit line by line for fluidity, clarity, grammar, and usage (commonly referred to as line editing), and will provide suggestions for improving the overall effectiveness of the piece.

    We’re careful to retain your unique voice and style so your writing will sound like you, but optimized for readability and maximum appeal.

    Next, WriteByNight will proofread your manuscript for spelling mistakes, improper punctuation, typos, and formatting errors.

    Proofreading is the final essential step in preparing your manuscript for submission to agents or publishers.

    (Line editing and proofreading also available separately.)


    Editing & Proofreading Includes:

    • Preliminary Q&A to determine your needs, goals, preferences, and expectations
    • Full edit with detailed notes throughout the manuscript
    • Clean copy of the manuscript with all edits applied


    $60/hr. for editing, $50/hr. for proofreading
