Righting ̶Y̶o̶u̶'̶r̶e̶ Your Writing

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to Englicious Editing Services. Whether you have an essay, article, letter, or most anything else in need of copy editing, just leave it to me.

If you're looking for a speedy, around-the-clock service—and are prepared to pay the plus-sized prices that come with that—then you'll need to look elsewhere; Englicious is a simple and inexpensive service run by me alone. It is a way for me to use my knack and passion for language to benefit others, while earning a little money in the process. Rather than rushing the job, my highest priority is ensuring quality work, which I think you will appreciate once you see how carefully your writing has been handled.

My experience over the years specifically in copy editing has been largely informal until now, while my broader language experience includes German–English and English–Spanish translation, as well as private tutoring in Reading, Writing, Spanish, and German.

If I don't feel qualified to edit your work, I will quickly let you know. If you're not sure whether you can entrust your writing to my abilities, just request a free sample and judge for yourself. You have nothing to lose and a lot to save.

Beyond correcting and polishing your work as your editor, my aim, as any dedicated tutor's, is also to help you understand your errors and become a better writer. You'll therefore also receive a draft showing the raw, color-coded edits, along with some general feedback and tips for improving your writing.

Just have a grammar question or need some writing advice? Send me a message and I'll answer your question to the best of my ability at no charge.

Note that I speak American English. I am familiar with several characteristics of British English but am by no means an expert on standards of Br. English or other varieties of English. 

What You Get

  • The annotated draft with color-coded edits to help you understand the changes I've made.
  • The final draft (an edited, polished version of your writing).
  • General feedback and suggestions for improving your writing.

Placing Your Order

  1. Submit your order details and wait for an email from me. You might receive an automated message upon submitting the form, but my email will come later.
  2. Once we've settled the price and I've confirmed your order, you can pay for your order. My timer starts when you submit the payment through PayPal.
  3. Check your email regularly in case I need to contact you with questions regarding the editing.

NOTE: If I am unavailable or feel unqualified to edit your work, I will let you know as soon as I can so that you can quickly find another editor.

Rates and Turnaround

Once you submit your order details and document, I'll tell you how much I'll charge for the job and whether the specified deadline is feasible. The price will depend on the number of words in the document, the nature and complexity of the text, the degree of editing required, and the time you give me to edit. A document containing 300 words will likely cost $3.00–$4.00, though the more text you submit, the lower the average price per word will be.

The minimum turnaround I'll need to edit may vary, but generally count on 1 day (excluding Sundays) for every 500 words. If you can give me more time, the price will be lower.

Free Sample

I would hate to disappoint you, so to let you check beforehand that I'm what you're looking for, I'll edit up to 150 words of your document as a free sample. Just submit your text as an order, only make sure to select “free sample” instead of “full order”. Unless I'm unavailable, you should have the sample within 24 hours. If you like what you see, simply order the full service; if not, you haven't lost a penny.

Editing for ESL (English as a Second Language) Writers

If English is not your native language and you are worried about the clarity of your writing, rest assured. I myself have experience learning multiple foreign languages and know how stressful it can be to correspond with native speakers.

Because of my own experience, I am confident that I can help you communicate clearly in English. Selecting your native language when submitting your order details helps me understand your difficulties with English and better accommodate you. I have the most experience with Spanish, German, French and Finnish.

 

Thank you for visiting Englicious Editing!
