Proofreading, Editing and Portfolio Site Services
Get it done right
By  IN House Staff

The key to writing success is using a professional service to enhance your work.
he Freelance Writing Organization - International, home to Inkwell Newswatch (IN), is launching three types of new services to assist writers in their career and project development. Take a look around at both our main web site and our online publication and you can see that we know our stuff. We provide easily accessible, well written and edited work and visual designs. To discuss any of the following services please contact us at and we will get back to you as soon as humanly possible.

Proofreading: (A final set of eyes)

Generally speaking, the act of proofreading involves pointing out and/or correcting typographical and punctuation errors, spelling mistakes (according to standard usage) and formatting problems found in a document.

Basic Proofreading: $25/hour; $3-5/page

If your writing has already had the 'run through' by yourself, your friends, colleagues, even an editor, basic proofreading is something that needs to be done before finally sending out your work. In other words, we act as a final set of eyes simply checking for errors to polish everything off in a neat and professional manner. Any errors found will be highlighted for your consideration.

Extensive Proofreading: $35/hour; $5-7/page

This service is for those who just want to forge the words and let them fall on the page. Recommended revisions will be shown for basic grammar, typos, sentence structure and formatting errors by highlighting the area(s) that needs to be rewritten.

Editing: (An active editorial role)

Basic Content/Copy Editing: $29/hour; $4-6/page

With this service written revisions to your writing ensure that grammar, typos and sentence structure are corrected. All changes made are shown on the page in red type to make it extremely easy for you to see what we have changed and where.

Moderate Content/Copy Editing: $37; $6-8/page

Includes the Basic Content/Copy Editing services explained above, plus moderate to somewhat extensive rewriting of content to ensure story and dialogue flow.

Extensive Content/Copy Editing: $40; $9-10/page

This service is premiere and includes all of the above, Proofreading, Basic and Moderate Content/Copy Editing, plus full rewrites, extensive suggestions and collaboration (no credit) with the writer on overall clarity, and minor follow up research to ensure accuracy (if required). It may also include the assurance of word style and consistency throughout the document, clarity of logic and removal of repetitive words and/or repetitive non-essential writing patterns.

Portfolio Web Page Construction: (Getting you online)

As a writer having an active web site presence on the Internet is imperative. You can house your work in showcase sites with hundreds, even thousands of others, or you can have your own, affordably built site and domain.

Construction of your own site is as simple as you supplying us with the written material (content and graphics/pictures) and we will build your interactive portfolio web site pages, including blank templates for future use, that will provide a professional and attractive presentation of your written work.

Service prices range from $20-50/page depending upon the complexity of the site and material. All pages are written in HTML format and uploaded to your web site location.

We can recommend a hosting and registration company if need be, but you will need to register and host the site yourself in order to maintain full control over your material.

Once we have designed your pages and your portfolio site is complete you have control. If you need additions to the system, changes made or any modifications performed, you can either come back to us (which we hope you will) or you can easily find another site designer and allow them to make the modifications.

This service includes basic education in how to make HTML changes yourself such as; adding links and graphics to web pages, inserting your future writing work using templates. We will also provide direction on where you can make your own custom graphics and logos, plus obtain royalty free pictures and clip art for future site design use.

Note: For all services above, higher rates are charged for technical, scientific, scholastic and reference materials.

Payment: A 50% deposit is required on all services. We accept all major credit cards and various other forms of payment.

Traffic Swarm For Writers

Hottest Books This Month!

Whose Books Are Turning Into Movies?
Bald Ego
Mouse Over To Pause

Writer’s Block
The path to inspiration starts
Upon the trails we’ve known;
Each writer’s block is not a rock,
But just a stepping stone.

Poetry Is Not
Penned to the page
Waiting for us to admire.
It is only a lonely thought
Caught by tears on fire.

Silent Echoes
A quiet rhyme upon a page
Is what a poet gives;
Some gentle words whispered in trust
To see if memory lives.

Bard From Deadlines
What makes a poem finally work
Is not the time it takes;
It’s how the poet used the muse
To prophet from mistakes.

Be Mused
The art and craft of poetry
Are not so far apart;
The craft comes from the cunning,
The rest comes from the heart.

Fine Vintage
Don’t plant your poem on the page
As though you’re hanging drapes;
It’s shape and flow should come and grow
Like wild summer grapes.

Getting It Write
Writers write what they know best,
Their passions, fears, and dreams;
Writers rarely write about
What other call their “themes.”

Double Vision
A writer’s life is paradox,
It’s more than what it seems;
We write of our reality,
The one inside our dreams.

The echo of a promise,
The thunder of a sigh,
The music of a memory,
A child asking why.

Letter Perfect
Twenty six symbols arranged on a page
Can send a soul to heaven or torment it with rage,
Can free a fragile world or hold it in its net--
The power and the magic of the mighty alphabet.

The Write of Passage
The jump from writing just for fun
To getting paid for it
Begins when you first realize
You know you’ll never quit.

It is not the magic of his wings
That sets us free from our bond.
It is the muse within ourselves
That lets our words lift us beyond.

Photo Poet
Consider your mind the darkroom,
Consider your life the lens,
Consider your eye the camera
On whose focus the poem depends.

Rising Moon
A poem is a rising moon
Shining on the sea,
An afterglow of all we know,
Of all we hope to be.

Star Light
Writing a poem,
Reaching a star,
In making good art
We find who we are.

Spider Web
A poem is a spider web
Spun with words of wonder,
Woven lace held in place
By whispers made of thunder.

The final draft upon the screen,
At last my poem’s through;
A verse of only four short lines--
I rewrote twenty-two!
