Bowler Fern provides a competitive editorial service for works of fiction, autobiography and non-fiction before submission to agents or publishers.
Our priority is to provide you with a prompt and friendly feedback process on your work. Our approach is focussed on courteous, constructive critique. We will eliminate obvious errors and check for inconsistencies, but our aim is also to help you to maintain your own style to make it as strong as it can be.
We have three levels of service.
Standard proof-read: a simple edit on your work using tracked changes to highlight and correct any grammatical, spelling, punctuation or format errors.
Précis service: this is the proof-read, plus the removal of redundancies, repetitions or unnecessary words which may have escaped your first editing process. The purpose of this service is to reduce your word count without harming the tone or meaning of your work.
The full edit: this is a line-editing service on your work using tracked changes and comments to highlight any character and plot issues as they arise, as well as the standard proof-reading and identification of unnecessary words. For works of non-fiction, we will raise any issues of clarity over the material provided.
