Get a Final Review to Make Your Manuscript Shine

You've been over it numerous times, you've had it edited, and now you feel that it's time to get your project "out there." But don't go too fast and miss the final step. You don't want to send your manuscript off to an agent, editor, or publisher without a final draft manuscript proofread.

A professional proofreader can spot and correct the errors in the text that you've read too many times to notice—spelling errors, grammar errors, typos ... all the little things that can look big in the eyes of a literary agent or an editor. We'll provide the final copy editing needed to polish your manuscript so that you can send it off with confidence. Scribendi has been a leader in the field of editing for two decades, and our proofreaders have worked with a vast range of genres and formats in both fiction and nonfiction.

What will you receive? 

  • A completed manuscript that has been proofread line by line
  • Correction of any grammar errors, spelling errors, and typos
  • Tracked revisions so that you can see and review all the changes that have been made
  • Commentary and suggestions regarding any issues or concerns that have been noted
  • A short summary of the work that has been done and any major concerns

What types of manuscripts can you use this service for?

  • Novels, novellas, and short stories
  • Plays and screenplays
  • Poetry
  • General nonfiction (memoirs, biographies, self-help, etc.) 
  • Note: Proofreading is typically for final drafts of manuscripts that have already been edited. If you would like help with word choice, sentence structure, style, plot, structure, and organization, please consider our Manuscript Editing service.
  • Note: This service is not appropriate for journal articles or academic work, but our Academic Editing service or English Academic Editing service (for ESL writers) can provide everything you need and more!

We can work with most major file types, and we ensure safe file uploads and downloads through our secure encryption; we know how important your project is, and we keep your material confidential. Your personal information is also kept strictly private.
