Best Manuscript Editing for Writers
Best Professional Manuscript Editing
Why do writers need manuscript editing?
Did you know most editors don’t read past the first page of a submission? And if they find an error in the first paragraph, the next stop for your manuscript is the shredder.
We edit all of the following works and more:
- Short Stories
- Children’s Picture Books
- YA Novels
- Middle Grade Novels
- Short Stories
- And more!
Don’t let your manuscript get buried in the slush pile. We transform your manuscript from less than perfect to polished. So leave the manuscript editing to us!
Move on to your next WIP (work-in-progress) or just kick up your feet while Precise Proofing refines your manuscript for editorial submission.
During our manuscript editing process, we’ll be sure to preserve your voice or style. If your characters speak in a dialect, we’ll check that it rings true.
We’ll fine-tune your manuscript by ensuring format consistency, checking for proper punctuation and grammar usage, eliminating accidental misspellings or misused words that spell-check doesn’t catch and so much more!
Precise also performs developmental manuscript editing services, which provide a more in-depth critique of characterization, plot, story arc, pacing, organization, structure, voice, tone, literary devices, stylistic elements, and overall substance.
Your manuscript is in safe hands with Precise.
What will my proofread or edited document look like?
That depends on how you’ve submitted your document to us.
If you submit a Microsoft Word file to us, we will return your edited document with all changes tracked, enabling you to individually accept or deny each edit. You can also view a completed, ready-to-use copy of the same document (with all changes made).
If you submit a hard copy or a computer file to us that cannot be edited (.tif, scanned file, etc.), we will return your document with handwritten edits. You can choose which changes to make to your original document.
