The Drawing Board is what you come back to when you need to refresh and enliven.
At The Drawing Board, we are very much partial to other writers, especially academics, writers of non-fiction and crafters of prose. We love you and would be honoured to support your work the best ways we know how.
Research for a specific project can seem like a daunting task but did you know that The Drawing Board is made up of highly skilled, award-winning researchers? Whether you need historical information for a non-fiction piece, a specialized tidbit of information to make a passage in your prose sound more authentic, or a full-fledged research assistant for an academic project: we have you covered.
Do you need an entire book written? Or large parts of it? We specialize in producing memoirs of the highest quality for individuals who have a story to tell but are not themselves writers. We conduct in-person or long-distance interviews and keep close contact throughout the research and writing process to ensure your story is told how you want it and in the best way possible.
Are you a public figure who needs timely blog articles or opinion-editorials in response to current events? We are well-versed in crafting high-quality opinion pieces that get to the point quickly and move people to think and respond.
Proofreading: For polished pieces that need to be carefully looked over for typos and errors – whether short stories, articles, chapters or full-length books – we are happy to oblige!
Copy Editing: Our copy editing and reviewing services are unparalleled and include:
- mechanical editing for consistency and rules to follow according to the necessary editorial style, as well as
- content editing with regards to argument consistency, argumentative structure, and situating the argument within its existing discursive environment.
The last option, in particular, is available in the following areas of writing and research:
- Critical Race Theory
- Islamic Studies
- Jewish Studies
- Religious Studies
- Social Memory Studies
- and more
Citations can be a tedious task but you do not need to deal with them alone! We can convert citation styles for you, ensure there is consistency in your footnoting, and double check to make sure you have cited your sources properly. This service is included in all copy editing work, but if that is already done and citations are still something you need looked at, we can do it for you!
Bibliographies can also be a bit of a bore and are always much more time-consuming than you would think. We don’t mind making sure your bibliography is in order, is reflective of both your research and works cited, and that the style of entries is publication or discipline compliant.
Formatting can be a nightmare for people who just want to write. And the rules for formatting can vary depending on the publication. Let us figure it all out for you so you can spend more time doing what you love most.
