Book editing

Our specialist editors look at your manuscript with a discerning eye.

Giving your writing an edge​

Tate & Clayburn offers expert developmental editing, line editing and copyediting for fiction and non-fiction books, as well as other manuscripts. We’ll begin by discussing your needs and vision, what stage your manuscript is at and how much intervention you’re looking for.

We consider narrative, tone of voice, characterisation, consistency, structure and lexical choices. We can also spot opportunities for greater creativity, entertainment or persuasion, depending on your intended readership.

If you’re simply looking for a final polish, check out our proofreading service.
