General Proofreading

General Proofreading corrects grammar, punctuation, formatting, verb tenses, phrasing, sentence construction, and word choice. Sentences that appear awkward will be edited and parts of the text where the meaning is too vague to be edited or rewritten will be highlighted. House style and other formatting issues will also be corrected, as we are familiar with all the major style guides, including APA, Chicago, McGill, AMA, OSCOLA, CSE, and MLA. All changes are tracked and subsequent rounds of revision come at no extra cost.

Thorough Editing

Thorough Editing involves two rounds of work: (1) a rigorous review of the work's logic, organization, and whether the research supports the argumentation; and (2) a more fine-grained reading to check for the mechanical elements of language covered under General Proofreading. The text’s flow, style, and syntax may be improved, and we are also able to check references and draft indices for larger work. All changes are tracked and subsequent rounds of revision come at no extra cost.

Corporate Editing

Corporate editing is a core business for us. We assist small and large firms convert their ideas into cogent, readable copy. We favour pithy, to-the-point articles that are readable and can serve commercial purposes. Our corporate editing work is geared towards helping firms develop text with greater finesse and nuance, and we are always happy to do the requisite background research to achieve this end.

Fiction Editing

Our fiction editing involves a thorough critique of your manuscript, focussing on narrative, theme, prose, character development, and clarity. Our feedback will include a broad response to your work and a detailed commentary on elements or moments that would benefit from further development. In every case, there will be plenty of back and forth between writer and editor.
