Editorial Services & Consultation

Professional editing ensures that your writing works, whether you are producing a report, marketing content, your next novel, or new scholarship. With Ink Blotter by your side, you can feel confident that your writing is clear, your narrative works, and your ideas pop.

Copy Editing / Line Editing

At Ink Blotter, Elena Abbott can help you refine and polish your writing with an intensive line-by-line review. Line editing will catch faulty grammar, flag unclear passages and redundancies, ensure your work conforms to your preferred style guidelines, and smooth out awkward sentences.

Are you tackling a daunting academic project that needs a more effective thesis or structure?
