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.
Types of services
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 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.
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.
