Are you simply interested in checking grammatical and design errors? Need a second pair of eyes after your own initial edits? Proofreading might be for you. Here’s a basic list of the proofreading services I offer:
- Mechanical Errors
- Hyphens and dashes, capitalization, treatment of numbers, quoted information, abbreviations, acronyms, initialisms, italicization, underscores, boldfaced type, charts, tables, and graphs
- Consistency of Parts
- Page number correlation, footnotes and end notes, etc.
- Grammar and Usage Errors
- Sentence fragments and run-ons, subject and verb agreement, inconsistent parallelism, incorrect pronouns, essential and non-essential clauses, missing apostrophes, missing capital letters
- Spelling and Punctuation
Perhaps you’re having trouble with structure, content, or organization of your ideas. In that case, copyediting might be for you. Here’s how copyediting goes beyond proofreading:
- Clarifying ambiguous statements or assertions
- Correcting structural, organization, or conceptual problems
- Pointing out inconsistencies or discrepancies
- Streamlining or revising figures of speech, redundancies, hyperbole, or euphemisms
- Getting rid of passive voice
I offer copyediting at light, medium, and heavy levels. Contact me for a quote and together we will figure out what your project requires.
Do you find writing tedious? Does the thought of putting pen to paper make you want to tear your hair out or bolt in the opposite direction? I can help with that. I have diverse writing experience that includes academic, fiction, nonfiction, creative nonfiction, and blogging styles. I’ll work to help you say what you mean on paper without compromising your unique voice.
