Copy Editing and Proofreading

Copy Editing and Proofreading

Red Lines

Hurray! You’ve reached the stage where your manuscript or written copy is ready to send to the printer!  Or is it? Time to call the proofreader!

Even if you’re working with a graphic designer or copyeditor, it’s crucial to have a second set of eyes proofread your project. Save yourself some embarrassment; I bet these people wish they’d hired a proofreader.

I’ll review your work line by line, noting any typographical, grammatical, or formatting issues using conventional style guides. Sure, I’ll mark it up with red lines, but it’s a good thing! I means I’ve spotted the errors instead of your readers.

I work with MS Word documents, Google Docs, PDFs, or hard copies.
