Why is PaperBlazer better than Grammarly?

To start, PaperBlazer is not automated.  We do not rely upon automation. Instead, a real human editor reviews and corrects your document.

Changes are implemented for you, which saves you time in the long run. In the end, we provide better accuracy, authentic tone, and greater rhetorical effectiveness. 

Computers frequently miss grammar and spelling mistakes.  For example, “wright,” “right,” “rite,” and “write” are all spelled correctly, but they mean very different things. A human editor does much better with finding errors like this, since there is so much nuance in written language.

Further, we are more cost effective. Grammarly requires a subscription; then if you want a human to help, you need to pay extra above that subscription fee. With PaperBlazer, the best possible service is included at the start, so you pay nothing more.

Who will edit my document?

A writing expert with an advanced degree and professional writing experience.  PaperBlazer is unique because we know what writing needs to be in both professional and educational settings.  With premium orders, an editor with actual college teaching experience will review your paper.

When will I receive help?


You will receive personal help within hours.  Your order determines how quickly you will receive your corrected document.  Here are the three options:

  • Basic: 72 hours or less.
  • Plus: 24 hours or less.
  • Premium: 12 hours or less.

PaperBlazer is unique in that we beat our own deadlines.  If you order a premium scan, for example, your document will be prioritized.  Premium orders are guaranteed within 12 hours, but in many instances, clients receive a proofread document within a matter of hours at no extra cost. Basically, this means that you receive extraordinary service for a much cheaper price.

How does PaperBlazer edit books?

We have edited countless novels, books,  and other creative works. Unlike other online editors you are assured to work with someone with a decade of experience.

Our editors have teaching experience with creative writing courses, graduate degrees in writing, and years of editing experience.  If you want to get published, we would love to help.  

Finally, our prices are much cheaper than other competitors, which is a benefit to aspiring novelists. Our goal is to make world-class editing available to every writer.

What about ESL editing service?

Yes, we have worked with countless ESL writers.  Our clients come from over 35 countries around the world, including China, Japan, Germany, Hong Kong, South Korea, India, Cuba, Holland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the Philippines.  More countries are being added every month.

Why is PaperBlazer better than a writing center?

While writing centers can be helpful, the shortcoming is that their help is limited.  First, writing tutors will help you find general errors, but due to limited time and the need to help many students, not all of your errors will be marked.  This can be problem if you have trouble finding errors.  PaperBlazer marks all of the errors, so you can learn better and see how you are making all of your grammar mistakes.  Sometimes, it is difficult to improve as a writer when some errors are marked but not others.

PaperBlazer also offers editors with more experience.  Writing centers are often staffed by college students, librarians, or instructors with limited editing experience.  With PaperBlazer, you are helped by a professional editor with years of experience, which means higher quality results.

Why is PaperBlazer better than a writing tutor?

First, you never need to leave your home to send your paper.  This saves you time, energy, and  money.  Second, you can send your paper to PaperBlazer at any time of day, and you’ll receive help within hours.  You never need to set up an appointment with a tutor.  This is helpful because you can keep editing your paper up to the deadline!


Will you write or research for me?

No.  We are glad to help you after you have written something.  We offer writing assistance, but to ensure academic and ethical standards, we want to make sure that the ideas are yours.  As a proofreading and editing service, our goal is to help you improve as a writer, not write for you.  On a complementary basis, we are able to answer writing questions, but we cannot write for you.

As a friendly note, be wary of any website that promises to write or research for you.  Not only is that ethically questionable, but the quality will likely be very low.  We do not recommend that you use such websites.
