Rewriting service

About us

Our Rewriting service will help you achieve the book you've always dreamed of

Does your manuscript need complete rewriting? Most people are not born writers and you may have plenty to say without being confident that you can deliver it in a readable form, or even in correct English.

  • Perhaps you’re too busy to set aside time for the work?
  • Maybe you just can’t get your story, your account or your notes into publishable shape without some help?

If you’re in this situation our Rewriting service, which demands the very highest level of editorial skill, will result in a book you will be proud to have carry your name.

The specialist editor WritersServices provides for the Rewriting service will have top editorial expertise, with a long career in publishing and a solid range of editorial skills to draw on. They may also be a published author who writes clearly and with ease, but who has special expertise and experience in rewriting.

  • Rewriting requires a sympathetic understanding of the writer’s intentions and careful attention to tone and content.

  • We suggest that if you want to use this service you should send an email to WritersServices when you fill in the order form, setting out what you hope to accomplish with the Rewriting and what work you think needs doing on the manuscript.
  • The editor will need to read the manuscript and consider what the writer is intending to accomplish, to assess how long the Rewriting will take.
  • We need to charge a small assessment fee for this, payable in advance.  We will quote a fee and payment schedule for Rewriting after the editor has looked at the manuscript, and also provide a short assessment. At that point we will also confirm how long the work will take. Typically, the editor might need several weeks for a Rewriting job, but this depends on length and how radical the rewriting needs to be and it might well take longer.
  • The completion date will also depend on the availability of the particular highly-skilled editor required to work on your manuscript.

What it costs

Our fee for the initial assessment is £50 for up to 100,000 words, £60 for 100,000 to 150,000 and £70 for 150,000 to 200,000. We keep this fee as low as possible, but the editor will need to read through the manuscript to assess the whole work and advise on the quote.

The starting point for a Rewriting job on a manuscript of up to 100,000 words is likely to be in the region of £1500. This is our most expensive service because of the writing and editing skills required and the time needed to complete the job.  

Please send your manuscript as one Word file so we can give you a quote.
