Copyediting and proofreading
Are you concerned that your soon-to-be published manuscript might not pass the grammar sharks unscathed? I offer a copyediting/proofreading service that is committed to quality and affordability. I have successfully completed a course from Education To Go as well as gained practical experience from several years of copyediting magazine issues, fiction, and nonfiction. And also—I love doing it!
Each project receives my best.
The Different Levels of Editing
As of right now, I offer ONLY copyediting and proofreading. But to help you decide if I’m the editor for your needs, here is a description of the different types of editing.
All of these types of editing can be done by you, the writer. Often when you’re writing a second draft, you’ll fix problems in the content, think of a better way to write a sentence, or zap typos. But if you’re going to self-publish, you’ll need outside help. It’s difficult for the creator of a work to see everything that’s wrong with it.
Fix the story.
Fix the technical mistakes.
Fix writing & prose.
Fix whatever mistakes still exist in the final copy.
