Proofreading Services

Proofreading is the final stage of the editing process, focusing on surface errors such as mistakes in spelling and punctuation only.  We charge £4.00 per page as outlined in our submission guidelines below.

Our proofreaders work for major publishing houses including: Macmillan, Penguin, Cambridge University Press, Bloomsbury, HarperCollins, Transworld, Hodder etc.

Most writers will use this standard proofreading package. However, if there are substantial changes to be made, editing is recommended as the more professional option.

We are always happy to discuss your options with you so please feel free to contact us.

  • Costs apply to double-spaced manuscripts, in 12 point, printed on one side of A4 only.
