manuscript typing service

One of the most interesting and enjoyable aspects of my work is typing manuscripts, memoirs, novels, life experiences, short stories and poems. No matter how old or rough the original copy, whether it is handwritten or already in a printed format, I can reproduce the content into a fresh, clean document, ready for you to edit and ultimately share publicly or with friends and family.

This service is especially useful if you would like to reproduce an old typed manuscript or a handwritten manuscript that is currently printed or in book form, or loose or bound sheets.

Prices are fixed on a per 1,000 words basis and timescales depend on the size of the project. I offer free quotations and would be delighted to hear from anyone with such a project in mind.

If you have in your possession such a document, and would like it reproduced electronically by someone who will apply great care and sensitivity, please contact me today.

the process of copy typing a manuscript

I can work from handwritten, typed or printed materials, roughly typed drafts or printed books. The document can be styled to your instructions or set out in a standard manuscript format. You will be amazed at the visual transformation and easy access to the content once it has been newly typed into a Word document.

costs for copy typing a manuscript

Costs for copy typing from a manuscript range between £8 and £15 per 1,000 words, enabling you to estimate likely costs from the start. A deposit will be required in advance, with the balance due on completion and before the document is released.

I am happy to apply a light touch to punctuation etc., but the price does not include any editorial input, other than correction of spelling, online verification of people/place names, etc. where possible. I can also insert placeholders for photos or images.

timescales for typing manuscripts

The size of your manuscript will naturally dictate the timescales, which are agreed before commencement of the project.

storing and returning your manuscript

Whilst in my possession, your precious materials will be stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment, and kept securely in a lockable filing cabinet. Upon project completion and receipt of final payment, your original materials will be carefully packaged and returned to you via Royal Mail recorded delivery (charged at cost).

My helpful manuscript typing service is offered with a professional yet personal approach - all work is undertaken by me, ensuring continuity and consistency.
