Good ideas deserve to be shared.

ELLIPSIS EDITING

Good ideas need to be shared.

You’re telling a riveting story, doing groundbreaking research, or trying to make change in your community. Good ideas need to be shared.

But even the smallest details can distract your audience. Let us take care of the details so you can think big...

Ellipsis Editing will help you craft your writing so that it is as effective as possible. Whether by restructuring your whole book or just removing the excess commas, we identify the ways you can best tell a story.

We believe good ideas are served by the craft of writing: the grammar, style, voice and structure. These elements should not draw attention away from the idea you're trying to communicate. But they can be hard to see and edit in your own writing.

That's why we work with you to help make sure every aspect of your writing is working.

Chris Marcatili provided expert research assistance and copy editing, and was a sea of calm... thank you!

Types of services


Structural Editing

A structural edit considers the broadest view of your writing. Suggestions will be made to strengthen the overall flow of your writing, make sure it's coherent and consistent, and achieves the outcome you set for it. This is especially useful for writing that is in early stages, or that feels patchy and unclear. 
 



Copy Editing

Copy edits consider how to improve your writing at the sentence and paragraph levels. Improvements can be made to sentence structure, word choice, and consistency can be applied across your document. This is the most common edit, and is useful to polish writing that has already been well developed.



Proofreading

During a proofread, complete focus is on the smallest details of your writing. Corrections are made to spelling, grammar and style. This is an essential option for any piece of writing that is intended to find an audience through publication, to make sure it does not contain errors.
