Does your writing say what you mean, clearly and efficiently? Is it accurate? Editing, sometimes referred to as copyediting or line editing, can fix common errors in:
- Inconsistent capitalization, names, dates, numbers, etc.
- Use of passive voice
- Fact and clarity
Can you afford to reprint your project if there’s a wrong phone number or an embarrassing typo, like “pubic” instead of “public”? What if your website sends readers to the wrong links? Typically proofreading provides a final review of copy, comparing your document with a previous version to see that all requested changes have been made. A final review will catch such problems as:
- Errors in grammar, punctuation, consistency and spelling not previously caught
- Design inconsistencies
- Errors in page numbering and cross-references
- Unintended line or page breaks
Writing and Rewriting
If writing is not your forte, let me help you say what you mean. I have years of experience writing marketing and public relations copy as well as articles for print and online media. I’ve written and refined blog copy for small businesses.
