Accurate, on-time short story editing

You write short stories to move readers emotionally while using an economy of words. A careless error or a hackneyed phrase could derail your reader’s attention, even after all the careful work you put into your short story. Don’t let this happen—do what many successful authors have done and work with to make your short stories powerful and engaging.

Over 10,000 previous clients have enlisted our services to edit and proofread an enormous range of documents and files. In addition to short story editing, we also edit novels, screenplays, poetry, and other literary work as well as abstracts, business proposals, and almost any other kind of document. No matter what your document may be, it will receive steadfast and enthusiastic attention from an editor with knowledge and skills perfectly suited to your work. Quality comes first whether the job is a quick proofread or a thorough copyedit.

A close second in priority is on-time delivery. We’re available to stand with you against almost any deadline. We can edit some documents as quickly as 3 hours (our express service) or we can work with longer deadlines ranging from a day to a week—whatever works best for you.

Versatile editors who can handle any subject

Our clients come from all parts of the world. From Belgium to Abu Dhabi to Washington, D.C., we maintain a global client list because our editors are extraordinarily versatile, both in terms of their subject matter expertise and the kinds of documents they can edit. Consider the variety of these recent projects:

  • A donation request letter for Katherine, a staff member at a nonprofit in Vancouver
  • A research paper on biomaterials used for bone repair for Claire, a student at a prestigious university in Boston
  • A short film screenplay for Trang, a screenwriter in Vietnam

As you can see, our editors have what it takes to support a tremendous range of projects. If you want to use our service for short story editing, the process is simple. Send us your short story as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file (or any file format you like). By your deadline, we will deliver a thoroughly edited and proofread short story that has been precisely formatted.

An editing and proofreading team with exceptional skills

How can we be so sure our team will make a positive difference in your short story? Because we trust the extensive experience, deep knowledge, and superior skills of the editors we hire. We receive countless applications, but a select few applicants—one out of every 300—ace our intimidating skills exams and become our editors.

To ensure that we can collaborate with clients who write in any variety of English, we hire native English speakers from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries where mostly English is spoken. To ensure that we can edit our clients’ writing that follows any common style guide, we make sure our editors are experts in style guides (including Associated Press style, Turabian, and many more). Style guide revisions and custom or house styles are no problem, either. We stay updated and flexible to serve you best.
