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 if in-house personnel proofread our documents?
Great question! Most companies don’t hire proofreaders; they hire secretaries, administrative assistants, HR personnel, PR executives, etc. Quite often, it’s one of these people who are relied upon to proofread print ads to web copy and everything in between.
In truth, that person is probably not schooled in the English language, can’t recognize a misplaced modifier, or know all of the idiosyncrasies of our language required for professional business communications. That’s why it’s best to hire a professional to proofread, edit, and even write your business documents–someone who will maintain and support your business image and communications. This helps businesses to obtain prime staff utilization by allowing employees to serve a company through their primary job functions.
