WordWiser Ink Proofreading & Editorial Services

Request an Estimate and Sample Edit

WordWiser Ink offers free estimates and consultations provided some key information is supplied with your request. We make it easy for you to check with us for quotes and availability. Simply fill out the form below. If your project is a good fit for us, one of our editors will send you a proposal. That’s it! It’s that simple.

Please be advised our editorial team is composed of highly sought-after editors. Our calendars are usually booked weeks or months in advance, so we cannot always accommodate turnaround of large projects (more than 50K words) with short deadlines (under two weeks). We also typically have a waiting list averaging 4-8 weeks, so please consider this before finalizing any timelines in advance. 

While we do encourage you to still check with us in the event of a cancellation or delay of another client’s project that would open a window for your work, we can only consider requests with realistic expectations as our editors are blessed to consistently be in demand on a perpetual basis.


You can get an idea of our rates by viewing our Rates chart. It offers range rates for fiction, nonfiction, and digital content. For legal, medical, business, academic, scientific, and technical rates, please contact us.

What is a realistic deadline?

The following is not about how long your specific project will take, but it offers the MINIMUM amount of time you should allow for copyediting. You’ll also want to add time for your own post-edit review and any necessary rewriting based on our edits.

Minimum seven weeks

Minimum six weeks

Minimum five weeks

Minimum four weeks

Minimum three weeks

Minimum two weeks

As a reminder, this is merely a baseline standard for you to use in determining whether your deadline is realistic. Consider these before submitting a request for completion by a specific deadline. Your editor may be working in your project among other projects and other factors, so your projected turnaround will be based solely on her availability. You should never assume your document will be edited any sooner than these minimums.
