Why Choose Calyx Editing

Because we provide high-quality editorial support tailored to your particular needs. Because we bring the same meticulous eye for detail, focus, level of care and commitment to every job, however large or small. And because we’re actually pretty good at this!

We have a reputation for rigorous, informed and creative solutions and advice that reflect many years of hands-on experience across a wide range of books, academic texts of all kinds, and other communication materials.

As we see it, part of our role as editors is to lift your work to a higher level. You may be a specialist in your field, but perhaps writing isn’t your strength. Our promise is that a Calyx edit will ensure your ideas and your voice shine through!

Every writing project (even yours!) benefits from an outside eye, a fresh perspective and a thoughtfully pitched editorial intervention.

Language communicates best when it is direct, focused, concise, and free of repetition and padding.

Once we know your purpose, target audience and core ideas, we’ll advise on elements as diverse as voice and tone, language and style, pitch and flow. We’ll clear away the distractions caused by errors in grammar, punctuation and spelling.

And we'll consult with you every step of the way.

‘You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you, and we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.’
