It will also include:

  • Rewriting/reorganizing sentences or paragraphs

Proofreading & Copyediting

A combination of proofreading and editing, or a proof-edit, is also always available. This is where we can make sure your final text is clear, easy to read, and error free.

  • A custom style guide

  • Up to three rounds of edits
