I needed to write to say that you are the absolute best service I have ever used! I have now used your editing service for about a year and each time you have taken my rather awkward sentences and poor grammar and literally spun straw into gold.

Fiction Editing

Improve your fiction and master your writing skills

Writing a piece of fiction is tough! As writers and editors, our staff understands how much work goes into your manuscript, piece of poetry, ebook, or screenplay!

You need an expert fiction editor to spend hours giving your work the attention it deserves. Let us give it a good cleanup and critique while you take a break!

Our fiction editing service is designed to clean up an early draft of your work. We'll help you identify weak points and other issues to improve your future drafts.

We'll edit for style, tone, word choice, and sentence structure. We will also have a hard look at the elements of fiction—things like plot, dialogue, and characterization—and make lots of helpful suggestions.

You'll receive critique comments throughout the body of your work, and a short summary critique, too. You'll get a stronger, much improved piece of fiction as a result. Finally, we'll take a first look at spelling, grammar, and typographical errors, and we’ll tidy up these issues so you can concentrate on the creative process.

Don't worry though—we won't rewrite it, and you'll be able to see exactly what we've changed or suggested, giving you complete creative control. We know the importance of preserving the author's voice!

Since we know how hard you have worked to write your piece of fiction, we will make sure your files are secure. We will never make a claim on your copyright, and we keep your personal information private.
