Artist Editing

Why Artists Need Editing

We offer specialized editing services for fine and visual artists working in any medium. The artists we work with typically write artists’ statements and proposals, as well as essays, blog posts and website content, and book manuscripts.

Artists should concentrate on making artwork, not necessarily writing about their art. Here’s where a professional can help.

The writers and editors at Flatpage have years’ experience working with and writing for artists. Our services can help you connect with audiences, build a better professional portfolio and, hopefully, get the results you desire—including grants, residencies, commissions, and more!

We offer high-quality editing at a fast turnaround with unlimited availability!
