Manuscript Editing

Every writer needs a little help sometimes.











Editing is something every writer needs and it's very hard to edit ones own work. Sometimes it just takes a second set of eyes who can give you an unvarnished opinion.

Spelling, grammar, pacing, originality, and more. It takes many skills to write something worth reading. You're an artist and we get it. Every word is gold. Now let us help you distill the shiniest nuggets for maximum effect with your audience. There are so many audiences, and so much to do all the time. Let us help you carry that burden by collaborating toward your highest potential.

We can review your manuscripts while coordinating entirely online. We can help you explore Verboten's self-publishing features for articles, essays, and books.

Whatever stage of the writing process, we can help!
