Proof-editing services for peace of mind
Okay, so you may not have the time or the budget for both a copyeditor and a proofreader but you still need someone to tighten your text.
What is proof-editing?
Proof-editing improves how your writing reads, through a combination of light editing and proofreading done at the same time rather than at two separate stages. It’s richer than a traditional proofread but not as extensive as a full copyedit.
It’s hard to see how and where you can improve your writing when the words are yours. Proof-editing enhances what you’ve written and gives you a fresh perspective to your prose.
It’s my favourite service as I get to work more closely with my clients to achieve their writing goals. The key thing about proof-editing is that you, the writer or author, are open to suggestions.
You don't get a full edit of your content but you do get support with your language and writing style.
You benefit from a quality proofreading service and the detailed elements of light editing.
Keep in mind you won’t get any substantial re-writing or developmental editing with this service.
No matter how good you are, your mind will play tricks on you and tell you your text is fine. Mistakes slip through. You’re human!
