Nonfiction/Expository Writing Services


Eagle Online Services provides a wide range of assistance in nonfiction, expository writing to

students, businesses, bloggers, authors, non-profit organizations, clubs, churches, families, and more.

These services apply to text in all possible contexts, such as

academic papers (essays, term papers, articles, theses and dissertations, etc.), personal statements, resumes, cover letters, chapters and books, and website text.  


Our writing assistance ranges from proofreading to editing indexing, development, and the actual writing of documents. 

FREE ADVANCE ANALYSIS AND COST ESTIMATE: We provide free analysis of all potential writing assistance, including costs for the various services that may apply.  When possible, we include a free sample of what we can do for a specific writing project.  See our pricing page for writing assistance.

STYLE SHEETS:  For student-academic papers, we utilize the various applicable style sheets, including that provided by the Modern Language Association (MLA), the American Psychological Association (APA), and the Chicago Manual of Style Turabian, and so on.

Copy editing - Available for both nonfiction and fiction

Eagle online Services provides three levels of copy editing:

BASIC COPY EDITING:  Proofreading, which involves correction of mistakes in spelling, grammar, usage, and punctuation.

HEAVY COPY EDITING: Proofreading plus revisions, which involves such things as rewriting sentences and moving paragraphs, reviewing the logical flow or the piece, checking accuracy of references and footnotes, and editing tables

DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING: Includes both basic and heavy copy editing plus working with the writer throughout the writing process to assure coherence, completeness, and the accomplishment of the writer’s goals and objectives in the work.


This involves going through any document that requires indexing and compiling keywords into an index which readers can use to locate specific parts of the work and go to the relevant pages. 

NOTE: This service is primarily for nonfiction and is rarely necessary, or desirable when it comes to fiction.


Eagle Online Services will provide background research for both nonfiction and fiction writing projects using online resources.  The basic cost for such research is available through our Pricing Page, but if we have to use data bases that require a fee, that will be added to the cost of the research.

Original Composition: 

This involves actually composing the document sought by the client.  It might include writing such things as news releases, radio announcements, magazine articles, an instruction book or technical manual, and composing material for a newsletter or other publication.

NOTE: This service is NOT available for students writing papers.   We will assist students who are writing papers, but we will not write the papers for them.

Writing Instruction/Tutoring:

Eagle Online Services offers personal tutoring, critiquing and instruction to students and others wishing to improve their writing skills.  This service is similar to Developmental Editing discussed above, but is usually provided to those who not only have a specific writing project in mind, but who also seek to improve their own writing skills for their own future writing projects.

Additionally, we have a collection of articles regarding various approaches to writing both fiction and nonfiction, which are provided to all who seek writing instruction, or tutoring. 


We rely heavily on internet communication supplemented by telephone consultation.  All writing can be shared by means of e-mail.  However, hard copy can also be provided by means of fax, or regular mail.  Verbal contact on the telephone is used to negotiate fees, to clarify client needs, and to assure client satisfaction.  Face-to-face contact is available to those who live nearby.


When it comes to nonfiction, we believe that the best writing as that which is simple and direct and easily comprehended by the widest range of readers.  Toward this end, we advocate writing that is:

STRAIGHTFORWARD: Uses easy to understand words and avoids excessive jargon, or technical language, except when necessary (such as, in writing a technical manual, or a text book) .

LOGICAL: Has an easy-to-recognize logic, or structure that allows readers to read both top-down (that is, skim text to get overall view and read in detail when desirable, or necessary) and front-to-back (that is, from the beginning to the end).
