Fiction Editing & Proofreading Services

Capstone Editing is in the unique position to offer academics a specialised editing service that fully meets their particular needs.

An Industry-Leading Professional Editing Service for Fiction Writers


If you have recently finished your novel—congratulations! Now, you need a fiction editor with all the hallmarks of excellence to ensure that your work is presented in the best possible way. A professional fiction editor will not change the substance of your manuscript. However, they will ensure your grammar, punctuation and spelling are perfect and examine your work for discrepancies and continuity errors that you may have missed.


It can be extremely difficult to edit your own work. You know the plot intimately. This means that grammatical, spelling and syntax errors can be easily missed. Unfortunately, readers seeing your work for the first time are more likely to pick up on these issues. Our experienced fiction editors can help you present your work at a high standard.

Editing examples

I would like to thank my editor at Capstone Editing for her thorough edit of my grant proposal. Her suggestions gave me better ways of expressing myself with clarity and (importantly for grant proposals) with fewer words! She provided detailed comments on her edits that helped ensure that we didn’t inadvertently change the intended meaning. I appreciated her attention to the details of formatting and nuances of meaning across the document. I highly recommend her to help improve the readability and clarity of academic documents.

Dr Monica Barratt NHMRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow University of New South Wales

Capstone Editing has edited many journal articles for me. Their editors' thorough command of language really helps in making sure that the article is well expressed and free of errors. They work very quickly and I have found it invaluable to have somebody format an article to the style of the particular journal. It is a massive time saver that allows me to move on to my next piece of work. I plan to use Capstone's services again, including for a book project I have coming up. I highly recommend Capstone Editing to academics wanting to save time and wanting to submit their work with the confidence that it has been thoroughly looked over and formatted to their particular requirements.

The fast, elegant and professional service provided by Capstone Editing saved me hours, days and weeks of work for which I am truly grateful. They worked to very tight deadlines and formatted, fixed and corrected my thesis so that I could submit it on time (and within my budget!) The editors who edited my thesis had phenomenal attention to detail and provided me with tremendously valuable feedback that improved the quality of my thesis. In addition to the usual material, my thesis had dozens of tables in both portrait and landscape format, a research study and case studies. My editors very quickly corrected and fixed all the material I threw at them and went beyond the call of duty to provide me with a beautifully referenced and immaculately formatted thesis. I am so appreciative of their advice and assistance.
