Editing Services

MeliSwenk Editing
provides the following services:

  • Copy Editing: I work directly with the language, making your sentences smooth, keeping your content clear and coherent, and applying basic formatting to prepare for publishing.
  • Proofreading: I fix the spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors in your manuscript, and make sure the entire document is consistent.
  • Beta Reading: I thoughtfully take a reader’s approach by asking the questions readers would ask, highlighting areas of inconsistency, and noting strengths and weaknesses within the narrative arc.

“To write is human, to edit is divine.” Stephen King

If you’re only at the beginning (by having just reached your story’s conclusion), these strategic services will transform a rough draft into a manuscript you can publish yourself or submit to agents and publishers. Make an investment in yourself and your talent; get a head start with professional and personalized editing services that turn the fruits of your hard work into publishable prose!
