Services


Our services can add value to any piece of writing: ebooks and other fiction or non-fiction works, scientific reports, government documents, websites, or anything else with words.

There’s always scope for improving the readability and clarity of a piece of writing. the word nurse can inject that extra something into your work.

We offer three levels of editing:

The works: substantive editing

Goldilocks edit: copy editing

Last orders: proofreading

If you aren’t sure which level you need, we can help you figure it out; just get in touch to arrange an assessment.

How we work

We edit in electronic copy using Microsoft Word tracked changes and comments, or on hard copy using standard Australian or UK proofreading and copy editing markup symbols.

the word nurse can follow your style guide or use the Australian standard references:

Style manual for authors, editors and printers, (6th edition), John Wiley & Sons, Australia: 2002

Macquarie Dictionary, (6th edition), Macquarie Dictionary Publishers, Sydney, Australia: 2013
