This service for for writing projects that will be submitted to a professional audience, outside the University. WEX editors provide excellent services at a reasonable $50 per-hour rate. 

Services. You've invested time to write a manuscript, and now it deserves another pair of  eyes to ensure its success. Whether it's a short story, journal article, book manuscript, or applications for further study or internships, you want a polished manuscript/portfolio to submit to the publisher and/or new audience. Whatever your writing needs, WEX editors are here to help. Our staff are MA & PhD editors/coaches and professionally certified editors. We offer a variety of services, including: 

  • Deep Editing for content to provide feedback on writing elements such as organization, clarity of content, development of character or ideas. You might have been counseled by a publisher that your writing needs revision. Perhaps you need to go deeper in your analysis or delete repetition. This is best done before the document is complete or being submitted to the committee or publisher. 
  • Copy Editing for writing style, sentence-level revisions, transitions, and word choice. This careful review is best done near the end of the writing process, prior to submission to your chair &/or the final defense.
  • Format/Style Editing to adjust the formatting of your document according to a specific format and style sheet. This format editing is best accomplished with a final draft of the manuscript. You are expected to have all content, including in-text citations, in place before requesting this service.
