We charge by the hour so the cost for proofreading and editing services is based on the degree to which you would like us to revise your project for grammar, clarity and coherence, and style. For research and writing services, every project is different. Some ways to think about our services include:
This level of work is for nearly finished documents and materials. We will proofread your materials to ensure error-free copy and, if needed, make minor changes to improve the clarity of the writing.
This level of work is typically needed for drafts, materials that were translated into American English, and documents and website content requiring more attention than proofreading. When completed, your text will be coherent, clear, and accurate.
Other kinds of editing
This level of work is for editing highly detailed legal, technical, policy, and medical documents or for jobs that require additional research and substantial revisions.
Research and writing
We have a deep background in designing and completing research projects. We can conduct research in the areas of market analysis and public policy (education, business, environmental, urban planning, housing, employment) to meet your specifications and needs. If your organization needs documents, such as policy manuals, annual reports, grant applications or grant reports, or web content, we can do this work, too.
Website testing and analysis
Have you ever thought what the user experience is like for your website? We offer such services. We will examine your website, test links, and check for coherence throughout your site, then provide you with a report. This service is especially helpful for older sites or recently upgraded sites.
We have the expertise to ensure the completion of major research and writing projects. We will listen to what you need, organize and develop a process, communicate that process, incorporate input from all stakeholders, and lead the project to completion. Most importantly, we will develop the process and project to ensure a fit with your organization’s structures, culture, and goals.
As writers ourselves, we know that sometimes finding the right mental space to write can be difficult. Our coaching service plans include steps to move you past the obstacles that prevent you from finishing your project.
