What do people use English for ? Everything, from travel to business to following their passions. Clear, concise English is a must if you want your business to succeed, your book to make it to the Top 10, or your CV to be chosen by that HR person.

So how do you make sure your writing is up to scratch? That is where I come in.

You write. I help you get read.

Whether you would like a second pair of eyes for your fiction writing, a proofreader for your thesis, or someone to ensure your business plan is consistent, I will help you make your language vibrant, while getting your message across clearly.
 
I offer professional proofreading services, as well as heavy-duty editing. Some of the materials I have worked with include dissertations, academic journals, business materials and self-published fiction manuscripts.

I also engage in copywriting, depending on the subject. My strengths lie in topics as varied as online gaming (iGaming), literature, ELT and food.

Message me today to find out how I can help you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what service I require?

After you tell me about your text, I will ask you some guiding questions and request a sample. Then I will be able to tell you how I can be of help.

Generally, if no editor has seen that text until now, you will need at least a light edit.

How long does an editing job take?

That depends on your text. Copy/line editing a full-length manuscript (80,000+ words) takes around 2-3 weeks, depending on the number of edits necessary. In comparison, proofreading a blog post takes 1-2 working days.

How much would an edit cost me?

There is a number of factors taken in consideration when calculating price: text complexity, technical specifications, number of words, urgency of the job. Editing a manuscript generally calculates at €12-19 euros per 1000 words.

What methods can I use to pay you ?

Compelling Edits is based in Europe and accepts PayPal and bank transfers. Invoices are issued via email, and are in euros. If you require them in another currency, please inform me beforehand.

I was advised to turn to Roberta with my first book by long time author Ryan Attard and I knew immediately that my writing was in good hands. Fast, experienced and easy to work with!
