What is Proofreading?

Proofreading is the most basic editing service we offer. It is a thorough look-through of your manuscript for simple grammatical mistakes.

Usually, proofreading takes place after developmental and copyediting, after the manuscript has been formatted. Proofreading does not include comments or notes on the content of your manuscript.


15,000-50,000 Words starting at $550*

50,001-100,000 Words starting at $950*

Let us polish your project.

To inquire about scheduling, please email us at contact@literarysymmetry.com with the amount of total words of your project and the first 2,500 words of your manuscript. All editing projects require 25% deposit one week after agreeing upon a scheduled date for the manuscript to be turned into our editor.

* Prices listed above are for standard manuscripts. If we feel that your project will require more attention and time than these prices include, we will email you with options and suggestions.

Note: If you have scheduled an appointment for your manuscript to be edited, please be aware that we must have it on the agreed-upon date. We need at least four weeks to process each manuscript, depending on its length, and a back-log will affect other clients. Late manuscripts will incur a $150 late fee or will be subject to cancelation at which point Literary Symmetry will retain the 25% deposit.
