Do you need people who have a real way with words? Our copyeditors know how to trim, tweak and tickle text into a thing of beauty, whether your project is a collection of essays, a standalone article, or smaller pieces of content.

Copyediting takes place before a piece of text (whether book, article, or pattern intro) is laid out, and can be at whatever level you require.

Need your text checking for style consistency, sense, grammar, typos and repetition? You need a standard edit.

Need advice about the content and structure of your piece? You need a developmental edit.

If your text has already been laid out, and you just need the final pages checking, then have a read about our proofreading service.

Perhaps you are writing about knitting or textiles for a non-specialist publisher, and would like someone with technical knowledge to do a specialist edit? We are the team for you.

And if you aren’t quite sure what you need, but you know it involves editing, then just ask – our editors can help you see the project for the words, as it were.


Standard copyediting – £40 per hour
Developmental copyediting – £45 per hour

The amount of time it takes to copyedit a piece of text is dependent on the complexity of the original document. We are always happy to provide an estimate.

Typical standard copyediting times
