Writer's manuscript and other proofreading and editing services for Birmingham

Proofreading Services - but not in Birmingham

Calling all writers in Birmingham!

Why would you need a proofreader in Birmingham? There is a lot more choice further afield, and a lot more experience too! For a start, how would you get your book manuscript to your Birmingham proofreader?

The most logical way would be by email in electronic format. Changes can be made and highlighted on an electronic copy making it much easier for you to action or reject them. Nor would you need to re-write pages and pages like you would had you dropped a typed manuscript round to their house by hand. Using email opens up greater opportunity to grab yourself the services of a great proofreader rather than just a good one.

Where would your Birmingham based proofreader do the work? At your house or office? No, they would be proofreading your writing at their premises.

How would you communicate with your proofreader? Would it always have to be at a face to face meeting? Definitely not as that would increase the costs dramatically. It would probably be by telephone, email or Skype so it doesn't matter if you have found a proofreader further afield, you would communicate in the same ways.

So why limit yourself to a Birmingham based proofreader - widen the net and find one with more experience elsewhere ...

Book Manuscript Proofreading for Writers in Birmingham

After having worked hard on your manuscript or book, you deserve the best possible proofreader. Someone working nationally and internationally will have plenty of experience so that is another good reason not to restrict yourself to a proofreading service in or near to Birmingham.

Words Worth Reading head office is in Colchester, Essex but we have clients from all around the UK and abroad too. With hundreds of proofreading projects under our belts, we will most likely have done something similar to yours. How many local proofreaders can claim that?

Here's what we do - how does this match up to other services?

  • A full review of spelling, punctuation and grammar, with amendments made directly to your submission (via track changes)
  • A comprehensive summary report that looks at areas such as the use of language, diction, characterisation, storyline and spelling and grammar, with specific text examples to demonstrate suggestions / comments made
  • Unlike some proofreading services, any changes that you accept from us remain your copyright
  • If required, we can furnish writers like you with a list of appropriate websites or online stores that can be used to obtain illustrations and images for your book
  • Our services are priced per 10,000 words so that you know what you are getting, no hidden surprises

Why not use a proofreader close to Birmingham?

By choosing a national proofreading company, you may pay a little more, but will benefit from a proofreader with a potentially much wider experience, ensuring that your writing gets the service that it deserves.

Birmingham Proofreading Jobs

We have carried out work for authors and magazine writers around the UK and in other English speaking countries. There was no need to turn up at our clients' office or home and eat all their biscuits and drink gallons of their tea! Materials were exchanged by email, discussed by telephone and Skype then returned, ready to submit to a publisher or three.

You receive on-going email support, so if you have any questions, queries, or need further advice once the job is done, drop us a line! We provide a free sample editorial of 500 words if required, prior to purchase.
