Book Editors & Proofreading Services in Perth


The capital city of WA, Perth is dominated by the state’s huge resource extraction industry (mining and extraction of oil and natural gas), a crucial cornerstone of the Australian economy. The city is warm throughout the year and commonly ranked among the world’s top 10 most liveable cities. Perth had a population of over 2 million as of 2015, is a major tourist destination and supports a large sporting and arts community. Students choosing to study in Perth can have the pleasure of an outdoor lifestyle year-round, as the city is well set up for walking and cycling. The city has a great deal of parkland, and between September and November, the Western Australian wildflower season turns Perth’s parks and coastal trails bright with colour.

Capstone Editing has extensive experience in the provision of premium copyediting services to the postgraduate students and academics of UWA, Curtin University, ECU and Murdoch University. You can visit our testimonials page to read about the experiences of some of our past clients.

Professional Book Editors for Perth Writers and Academics

Whether an author has written a non-fiction or fiction book, their aim is usually to see it published. But there is more to publication than simply submitting a finished manuscript. The world of publishing is extremely competitive, and many publishing houses and agents now expect to receive manuscripts that have already been professionally edited. If you plan to self-publish your work rather than use a publisher, professional editing and proofreading services will ensure that your finished book is presented well and has been polished to a high standard.

Capstone Editing provides high-quality and timely book editing for Perth writers and academics. Our editors are among the best in the country and can give your book the edge it needs to stand out in an increasingly demanding publishing world. We will ensure that your manuscript is free of spelling, grammar and punctuation errors and that it adheres to the style appropriate for the genre and target audience. With us, you can be confident that your work will be edited to a high standard, with the appropriate formatting and referencing.
