Nonfiction Content Editing

2-3 cents per word based on individual project requirements.


Comprehensive editing covering the clarity of your thesis and arguments, organization of the text, readability, and writing issues. Includes all aspects covered by a copy edit, a one hour phone consultation with your editor, and one hour of follow-up email support.


You may have the greatest idea in the world, but if it is unclear or poorly argued, no one will notice. In a content edit, we dig right in with extensive and specific notes to flag areas that require your attention, explain why there's a problem, and offer detailed ways to work through each issue. In the same review, we'll look at the details and fix anything in the writing like typos, grammatical errors, or awkward sentences. In some cases, we'll rewrite problematic sections to better capture your arguments. Don't worry though; you always have the option of rejecting changes if you feel the original is better.

Many authors like to talk to their editor directly before the editing process begins, so we have added a free one-hour phone or Skype consultation. Ask your editor any questions about the text or editing process, or highlight areas that you would like additional feedback on.

This package also includes one hour of follow-up email support so you can discuss the project with your editor and work through any lingering issues.
