Our Services

The Sharper Quill is a full service writing consultancy. We offer professional assistance from planning the first word all the way through the writing, editing, and publishing process. We offer two all-inclusive packages: a three month process for authors who already have a draft and a six month process for authors who do not come to us with a draft. Additionally, we offer all of our services as stand-alone products to authors, publishers, and scholars.


Structural/Developmental Editing - for dividing material into chapters or paragraphs and planning a book or academic project

General Editing - a review of grammar, syntax, word choice, flow

Copyediting - a review for consistency in language, capitization, word choice

Formatting and Book Design - layout consistent with style guides and industry standards

Proofreading - a final review to catch any errors
