Writing is an art. Editing is an art. Both subjective, both beautiful, both terrifying, both open to interpretation—much like an inkblot. Here at Inkblot Editing, we fuse psychology and art to create a masterpiece that is meaningful to each individual, author and reader. We take the time to learn the goals of your written words and help you craft a work that exceeds those goals.

As strategic problem solvers, we use solid judgment in conjunction with active imaginations to tame the Jabberwocky that is the publication process.

Why Us?

There are all sorts of editorial services companies out there, so why choose us?

Publishers, we know. We’ve been there. In previous lives, we’ve been hit with an onslaught of manuscripts that our in-house staff couldn’t handle. We’ve hired freelancer after freelancer who just never could quite meet expectations, much less exceed them. At Inkblot Editing, our hand-picked editors are the best out there, and they have a community of editors behind them as resources. Also, our blog offers a great place to advertise your latest book babies. We know what it’s like to walk in your shoes, and we want to help. Contact us, and let us know how we can make that happen.
