Have Your Book Professionally Edited

Editing and proofreading your special manuscript is a job for a professional editor. We've found the best of the best and hired them to be your second set of eyes.

Whether you've written beat poetry or the next blockbuster screenplay, a lavish period romance or a hard science fiction adventure, we know your form and genre. We know about important things like leaving the dialects alone, preserving your voice and vision, and making sure you retain complete creative control. If you've written nonfiction, be assured we'll be focused on helping you communicate your ideas clearly and concisely, giving you a better, stronger, and more perfectly crafted manuscript. If you have any questions about our author services, please feel free to check out our FAQs.

We can turn a short (up to 10,000-word) manuscript around in 24 hours. We can do a 250,000-word epic in a matter of weeks.

Scribendi has helped hundreds of authors prepare their manuscripts for publishing. Check out some of the published books we have edited!
