Manuscript Proofreading and Formatting

crumpledpaperJPG Have you finished a novel? Are you submitting your poetry manuscript to competitions? If so, your manuscript should be proofread and prepared to publishing industry standards. The format and presentation of your manuscript matters in the same way as how you present yourself at a job interview. Show up in jeans at your own risk!

Writer’s Relief offers a proofreading and formatting service (novels, nonfiction, and poetry manuscripts included). This service is designed to help writers prepare their manuscripts for publication and/or for submissions to literary agents and publishers, as well as contests and competitions.

Want to get a proofreading and formatting quote? Send us an electronic copy of your book manuscript ( Include your contact information: mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address. We’ll evaluate the manuscript and quote a price to prepare it for you. Be sure your subject line refers to the project you want proofed.

You can also call our proofreading department today at (866) 405-3003 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. ET.

You’ve done the work of writing a great manuscript, so don’t skimp on the final steps. Make sure that your pages are ready to pass muster with the agent or editor who receives them. We will format the manuscript to meet industry standards, and we can assist with special formatting for contests and/or competitions. Remember, presentation is everything!
