Copyediting & Proofreading

Why are copyediting and proofreading so important for your writing?

When you submit your manuscript for publication, within seconds, the agent or editor will gauge the quality of your ideas based on how they are presented. Choppy sentences, a grammatical error, or a single misplaced comma can make or break your book’s success. Submitting a document to your boss or colleagues? It’s the same. Your credibility is on the line.

Even if you are trained in the art of grammar, punctuation and syntax and have an excellent eye for errors, your eye can become fatigued, particularly when you’ve worked on a draft quite a bit.

That’s where a fresh pair of skilled eyes will ensure your copy is not only error-free but also musical, engaging, and clear.

No page should be shared with anyone until it’s been first copy edited and second given a stiff proofread by a professional. That last effort ensures you’re giving your work the best chance at meeting its right audience.

  • Copyediting

As a project nears completion, a writer’s eyes can become accustomed to the work, making it harder to see errors or hear clumsy sentences. Our editors step in to make sure the work is fluid, cohesive, and tonally consistent. Copyediting is typically focused on issues at the line level, but the copyeditor will also speak to more global issues such as choppy cohesion or awkward paragraph placement/organization if necessary.

  • Proofreading

Prior to being submitted for publication, any piece of writing must be reviewed to ensure it is razor-sharp, fluid, and free of errors. A clean, beautifully-presented manuscript will always ensure the ideas look their most competent. We leave no comma unturned.
