What WordsRU’s Editing Service
for Writers Can Do for You

Writing is intense and time consuming, and experienced writers know that completing the rough draft is only just the beginning! That’s why WordsRU offers services to assist writers at every stage of the writing process—from your first draft to your final proof.
What stage of the writing process is your project currently in?

I have a rough or second draft—choose Plus or a Developmental Letter!

A first draft is never perfect the first time around, and a professional editor will be able to give you feedback of a calibre that you would never receive from your friends, family, or writing circle. We provide this, as well as intense substantive editing and formatting, in our Plus Service. From our Plus Service, you can expect to receive the following:

  • Substantive copy editing to improve description, dialog, phrasing and so on in order to make the language of your manuscript really shine.
  • Full formatting within Word to prepare your work for submission to agents, publishers, or self-publishing services.
  • An in-depth feedback letter that includes a full-scale revision plan for your manuscript.

With our Plus Service, the editor assesses every line of your manuscript with an eye for improvement.
If you think your manuscript might need some dramatic changes, there is no reason for you to invest in a line-by-line edit of text that you might end up changing entirely. In this case, we recommend that customers select Other Writer Services and request a Developmental Letter. WordsRU's developmental letter service provides you with the objective feedback and tools you need to hone your story and improve your story-telling ability. This is an excellent option for anyone who has completed a first draft and just wants advice on how to improve the work as a whole.

I have completed several drafts—choose Basic!

Once you feel confident in the overall organization, pacing, content, and consistency of your manuscript as a whole (ideally, you’ve consulted with and integrated feedback from a professional!), you’ll want a final proof to get rid of any pesky typos or lingering errors. Even if you’ve already had your manuscript edited and formatted, the rearranging and transformations that are integral to these processes sometimes result in typos, odd sentences, and missing text.
Our Basic Proofreading service is just what you need. Under it, your editor will correct errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, and style in order to make sure that your work is truly ready for the public eye. WordsRU will assign an objective, fastidious editor to make a final pass over the text to bring your manuscript to its perfect shine!

I have a partial manuscript or other unique situation—choose Other Writer Services

If your manuscript isn’t completely finished, that is not a problem! Whether you are just looking for some feedback or advice, need someone to finish a project you’ve started, or want one of our talented writers to create a work of writing from scratch, WordsRU is here for you!
We can provide the following:

Developmental Letter

A critical review that gives you the tools to strengthen your manuscript. One of our professional editors performs a close reading of your manuscript, making short comments on the document to mark examples of issues. After completing the reading, the editor will write a 5 to 10-page letter identifying issues, providing suggestions and guidance, and assessing the manuscript on a number of levels, including:

  • Perspective and point of view
  • Character development and consistency
  • Plot development
  • Organization
  • Scene formation/description
  • Formation of paragraphs and sentences
  • Grammatical, punctuation, and spelling patterns
Developmental Writing

You’ve written a great story—one that needs to be told! But maybe some parts—or all of it—isn’t written as well as you wanted. If you feel frustrated about trying to tackle this problem yourself, one of our professional writers can take the work right out of your hands. The writer will rewrite whatever you wish with an eye to your unique voice and what’s working for you in order to create more impactful language that will awe and inspire your readers.


Need someone to finish your partial manuscript or even write the whole thing from scratch? Look no further! One of our amazing writers will work with you to create the project you’ve been dreaming about. Under our contract, you will own the copyright to the final written project!


Done with editing, but need to format or reformat your manuscript? No problem! Rather than dealing with the tedious work of ensuring the appropriate spacing, headers and footers, pagination, indentation, and margining is followed on every single page, let WordsRU's detail-oriented formatters do the work for you. Formatting service also includes the preparation and packaging of tables, figures, and images, where applicable.
