An editor for hire is someone you can ask for help with your writing. Hiring editing services by our capable professionals can drastically improvie your writing.
Do Ask for Basic Proofreading
An editor for hire readily helps with your grammatical doubts, spelling mistakes and/or punctuation placement or usage. It is a good practice to write your article or essay or manuscript, do a rewrite to smooth things out as best as you can and then ask your editor to give it a once over to make sure that your writing is free of any error.
Don’t Ask for a Rewrite
Some editors may do this but most of the time, with the kind of arrangement an editor for hire has with his or her client, a rewrite is out of the question. They do alert you of words which are misspelled, grammatical errors you need to address, as well as punctuations you misplaced or fail to use but it is your job to do any necessary rewrite once the mistakes are pointed out.
Do Ask for Fact Checks or Verifications
When you write, be it non fiction or fiction, some historical facts may insert themselves into your work. Sometimes, you include observations of several places, near or far. Most of the time, your recollection is true and you got your facts right but it is always a good practice to have those facts verified, especially if you have an editor for hire at your disposal. This is part of their service and you may as well make use of it.
Do Confirm Service and Rates
An editor for hire may offer different service than his or her fellow freelance editors. What are listed above are the basic service; some are ready to do only those, some can do more. Make sure you clarify things you expect them to do and the service they are willing to give, as well as the amount you are willing to pay.
