Editing Service Request Form

We have a staff of professional editors with extensive experience available to edit most types of writing.

When using the form below, documents should be submitted as .doc, .docx, or .rtf files only; images may be submitted either as individual .jpg/.jpeg, .png, or .tif/.tiff files or in a separate .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf file.

Once you have submitted your document(s) for editing, you will be directed to our administrative email address. Please type "Editing Request Submitted" in the subject line and put your name and email address in the message.  We will contact you to discuss your editing requirements and help you set up your initial payment. Once payment is received, the minimum time for editing turnaround is five (5) working days.  This does NOT include weekends or holidays.  If a paper is needed in four (4) days or fewer, a rush fee of $50 will be charged. 

Not all submissions will be accepted for editing.  There are times when no editor is available, there are too many papers in the queue, or the submitted material is not yet ready to be edited.  In this case, one of the WSIP editors will provide a written explanation regarding what needs to be done to the paper in order for it to be resubmitted.

What We Do

WSIP editors specialize in line editing (i.e. grammar, punctuation, overall clarity) and reference styles. We may offer minor insights, suggestions, or questions about content, structure, and organzation. Copyright and reprint permissions are the responsibility of the author. We do not edit class assignments. We also do not offer manuscript format editing at this time (table of contents, headings, titles, etc.). 

Editing Service Fee

The fee for our professional editing service is $50/hour, with a 1-hour minimum purchase. Click here to see our fees. Job requests of 4 or fewer days' turnaround are subject to an additional rush fee of $50 or may be declined.

Estimated Editing Hours

After you have submitted your editing request form and uploaded the document to be edited, we will contact you to discuss the estimated cost. Once you are ready to make your payment, you will be directed to the WSIP online store. If you have any questions, please call our main number at 520-621-5849 or email writingskills@email.arizona.edu.


This is an approximation intended only to help you determine how many hours of editing you may be expected to purchase. Editing may require significantly longer or shorter periods of time than estimated depending on quality, length, purpose, and type of writing. If we have overestimated the amount of time needed for editing, you will receive a WSIP credit in the amount overpaid. If the project requires a longer period of time, we will contact you. 

Please call the main office at (520) 621-5849 if you have any questions or you do not receive a response from us within 48 hours of submitting your document.
