Here’s How It Works
Here’s How It Works
Step 1: Plan Ahead
The editors in our network are among the best in the business, so their schedules are often booked months in advance. Do not wait until a week, a few weeks, or a month before you want your project to be done to find your editor and get on her schedule. You should make contact with the editor you think you’d like to work with, introduce yourself and your project, and check her availability. Even if your project is not finished, send her a short excerpt so she can get a feel for your writing and the subject matter of your material. Clearly communicate your goals and needs, and discuss your anticipated completion. By doing this, you will better ensure that your editor can accommodate you when you are ready to submit your work to be edited. You will also discover if the editor you wanted will be unavailable or is not the right editor for your project well in advance, so you’ll have time to reach out and build rapport with another editor without being stressed. The worst thing you can do is pick any editor you can find because you’re rushed. Plan ahead, start early, and take your time to find the right editor for your project.
Step 2: Choose Your Method
If you know which editor you want to work with, visit her profile and contact her directly either via email or her website.
If you’re not sure and want to request estimates from all editors that work with your material and are available, you may use the form below to submit your request for distribution to our network.
Step 3: Submit Your Request
When you request an estimate, you will want to include the following:
Any editor who is available to accommodate your timeline and interested in working with you will respond to you directly. They will be able to answer any additional questions you have as it pertains to working with them and their companies.
DISCLAIMER: Contacting our network does NOT guarantee you will find an editor among us. As stated, our schedules are often booked months in advance, so we cannot always accommodate short or unreasonable deadlines. Additionally, not every editor offers the type of editing you may need nor do we all edit every genre. On rare occasions, you may receive notification that your request has been distributed but not receive any estimates for your project. In those instances, it’s almost always due to lack of availability pertaining to either your deadline or your genre.
