Editorial Services

Choose from any of WritersServices 19 hugely popular Editorial Services

Reader's Report

This offers an assessment of the content and style of your manuscript. We will advise on its potential and whether it would benefit from more editorial work.

Copy editing

This skilled service provides a meticulous copy-edit of your manuscript, correcting spelling, punctuation and grammar, and tidying up your manuscript ready for submission to agents or publishers, or to go to the printer. We would advise you to have a report done before going to the expense of copy editing, in case you need to do a further draft first.


Self-publishing will appeal to any writer who wants to publish their own book. In recent years technology has made it much easier and cheaper to produce and sell your book using Print on Demand to reduce the initial cost. For many this is the preferred route to publication.

Editor’s Report

Scriptwriting Assessment

Our specialist service offers a Reader's Report and an Editor's Report on scripts, screenplays and plays, using the services of an expert editor with experience of scripts and a background in the professional theatre.
