Writing Center: Editing Services for Academic or Ministerial Writing

Editing involves detailed, sentence-by-sentence feedback on grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, and writing style. *Note that editing does not include specific feedback on formatting.

Students should only count pages that have substantial text; exclude title pages and bibliographies. Students can choose either revision or editing services for each request for writing support, but not both. Thus, if a student desires both revision and editing services for a written text, then he/she would pay for the text two times, once for revision and once for editing. All payments + Writing Assistance Request forms must be received at least 72 hours (3 full days) before feedback is required for a written text. If payment is not received at least 3 days in advance of needing feedback, then the request for revision or editing services cannot be honored. An additional day or two may be required for students who are being newly enrolled in the Writing Center.
