Copyediting

What is it?

Copyediting is when you get your raw material ready for publication, either in print or digitally. It covers a much broader range of issues with a lot more depth than proofreading.

How I can help you

I make sure your work reads well, is accurate, consistent, and suitable for your intended audience.

I pick up on issues such as overuse of words, repetitive sentence structure, as well as providing fact-checking and larger-scale error-checking.

It includes things such as:

  • Correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation

  • Consistency in writing, word choices, and style

  • Compositional spacing

  • Eliminate jargon and repetition

  • Revise inappropriate verb tenses

  • Check for subject-verb agreement

  • Insert transitional phrasing

  • Evaluate the continuity/flow of thoughts

  • Ensure support of statements

  • Correct formatting of citations/references

  • Correct formatting of footnotes

  • Check industry style guides 

  • Critical assessment and feedback
