    Proofreading

     

    Writers often come to us with work close to the final stage of completion. We will give your copy a review and correct any errors we find in the writing. Our editors will check for errors in spelling, grammar, sentence structure and punctuation.

    Content editing

    Content editing is much more intensive. It consists of adding text & re-writing sections of missing content. Content editing also fact checks & will add-in footnotes that you can use by choice. It is a higher level of copy editing as it can include some level of content creation along with making corrections.

  • Why should I use a copy editor?

     

    We always strive for the best.

    Many people rely on spell check as a reliable source for typos, spelling, & word choice. The truth is, spell check does not catch all errors. Sentence structures vary, things like conversational pieces & slang are structures computers simply cannot pick up on. A copy editor can give your work detailed revision because editing requires a certain focus only an editor can deliver.
