Frequently Asked Questions

Can you write an essay for me?

What services do you offer?

Proofreading and Editing for law students and academics.

What is the difference between proofreading and editing?

Proofreading looks for surface errors such as spelling, punctuation and it includes some light editing. Editing addresses the structure and flow of a document – it also includes proofreading and the opportunity to discuss your work if required.

How much will it cost?

The cost of proofreading is £7.99 per 1,000 words. The cost of editing is £10.99 per 1,000 words.

Why is editing more expensive?

Editing costs more because it requires more changes and can take much longer to do. Re-checking your work is also included in this price.

How can I pay?

We will send you an invoice once we have reviewed your work. Payment can be made via PayPal or direct bank transfer. We must receive payment before we return your work.

Do you give discounts?

Yes, we give discounts if the work is of an exceptionally high standard or for very long pieces of work (over 50,000 words). Regular customers may also be considered for a discount. In addition, we sometimes have promotional offers, please check our recent tweets.
