Gramlee – real live writers to edit and correct your sub-standard prose

Gramlee

Gramlee is a new online text editing service that uses real live writers to correct and polish your text. Just upload your words in any state you like, cough up the fee (starting at around $4.95 for 250 words) and their ‘team of professional writers’ will tweak, edit and correct your prose to make it sing with the joy of a soaring skylark. Or something.

I’m thinking that this is a service that a good many PR and company executives could sorely use, but I’m not clear on the financial model. The fee is ludicrously low and I can’t see the whole thing scaling to any degree without resorting to offshore sweat shop labour, which…ahem…might well defeat the object of the exercise. Ah well, what do I know? Or should that be knoweth?

 Step 1: Compose your text in any text editor such as Microsoft Word, Notepad, or even Outlook. Don’t worry about grammar, spelling or making it look pretty. (That’s what we do!) Step 2: Copy and paste your entire text into Gramlee. Provide your email address and submit. Step 3: Receive a professionally edited revision of your text by email. This isn’t a computer program that’s making edits – we’re real writers and editors!
