Free Sample Edit

Put Your Manuscript in Caring Hands


You wouldn’t trust just anyone to care for your child, pet, or loved one. Likewise, you shouldn’t trust just anyone with the care of your manuscript.

At Inspiration for Writers, Inc., we set ourselves apart by not only having the credentials and references you want when seeking an editor, but we also truly care about you, your writing, and the outcome of your work.

Try Us Out with a Free Sample Edit

We want you to be comfortable with our quality and our style of editing before any money exchanges hands. That’s why we offer a free sample edit for book-length works over 20,000 words.* This gives you the opportunity to see the quality of our work and lets us see how we can best help you. The writer-editor relationship is crucial, and a sample edit allows you to “try out” the relationship—free. Giving us a test run is easy.

  1. Send your first ten pages plus another chapter (or more) of your choice to
  2. Once we receive your work, we will assign the editor who best fits your writing style, genre and personality. And, yes, you may ask your editor questions and speak to a “real” person.
  3. We’ll read your material before we edit so we can understand your author’s voice and not trample over your style as we work.
  4. We’ll edit the first 500 words—enough for you to see what we do and how we do it. Work submitted for a sample edit must follow our submission guidelines. You’ll receive your sample back in a few days.
