COVID-19 business hours: We are open 24/7, as always. Our editors are working in safe environments, and are eager to serve you, now more than ever.
Writing children’s books is much like writing poetry: it is necessary to find precisely the right words and to pare down the story to its essentials. It can take multiple revisions to give your children's story the desired simplicity, insight, and brevity that makes a lasting and beloved work. It may also take some time to find your own unique voice in this age group and recreate your childhood experiences in a new way for your youthful audience.
After all, we can all remember the stories we were told and those that we read for ourselves as children; we remember the things that made us happy. The experience of writing for children can be very rewarding, although there are many pitfalls lurking for the unwary in the seeming simplicity of children's story writing. WordsRU's children's book editors and proofreaders understand these pitfalls and will help you to avoid them.
When you engage WordsRU's online service for children's book editing and proofreading, you can be certain of the benefit that your editor's experience will bring to your work. WordsRU editors work with you on a one-to-one basis in order to help you achieve a polished and appealing manuscript.

Finally, every editing project is overseen from start to finish by the chief editor, who will monitor the progress of your project and provide assistance to you if necessary. While communication with your editor occurs through our secure messaging system, your chief editor is available to you if you need to speak to someone "live."
