Welcome to Goldenwest Editing

No matter how comprehensively researched and how well written, all documents benefit from editing and proofreading to ensure that ideas are communicated in the best possible way. Since 1996, Goldenwest Editing has a proven history of providing excellent editorial services on time and on budget. Goldenwest Editing has experienced editors to help ensure overall consistency of style, readability and that the manuscript will succeed in communicating with its intended audience. Services may include general proofreading and editing, re-writing of sentences or paragraphs, and re-structuring of manuscript in line with appropriate publishing guidelines.


Proofreading: Consists of correcting surface errors such as misspellings (adjust for UK or US spelling) and mistakes in grammar (use of verbs, subject-verb agreement, pronouns, sentence fragments and misplaced/dangling modifiers) and punctuation (use of commas, apostrophes, periods, etc).

Copyediting: Most documents require some level of copyediting. We edit for errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation and usage; ensure consistency of mechanics and facts, correct content and style errors; clarify confusing and awkward writing; and point out areas we cannot resolve.

Working with us

Whether you are writing for print or online, first impressions are critical. Unfortunately, many authors (and organizations) don’t see the benefit of using an editor. Written materials that contain errors in grammar, word usage, spelling or syntax can damage credibility by creating the perception that the writer (or organization) lacks attention to detail.

Moreover, repetition, wordiness and imprecise language can conceal your key points or message. Goldenwest Editing can help you avoid grammatical errors, develop a consistent voice and clear up ambiguity in your writing.
