Get a FREE Sample Edit

March 15th, 2020 by Jane Turner

Sunday is Sample Edit day!

Just completed another free sample edit for a writer, a project I’m excited about.red ink corrections on a manuscript

A sample edit is very useful for both editor and writer. For the editor, it lets me see the standard of work so I can properly judge how much editing is required and how long it will take. With this information, I can provide a much more accurate quote.

For the writer, it lets you see my style of editing – how I try and achieve flow, readability, and correctness. From this, you can decide if you like my style, if you want to work with me.

I will return your sample chapter in two versions;

✍ A Clean copy which includes my questions/notes as comments, and

✍ A Markup copy, showing tracked changes so you can see exactly what I’ve changed and have the opportunity to ask about any specifics.

Editing is a collaborative process – I can’t write like you can, but I can make your text better. I don’t want to change your writing style or voice, I just want to make sure your work is readable, flowing and engaging.

Sample Edits are free of charge.

Get in touch if you’d like me to do a free sample edit for your manuscript. I’ll tell you what I’ll need, in what format.

For more info on what a copy editor does, see my Editorial Services page.

    Hello there,

    I am looking for a free sample of copy/line editing before submitting the entire manuscript. It’s a book collection of flash fictions: short-shorts, very short stories, and vignettes. The word count is about 33,900.
