Editing

Before you send your work or promotional material out into the world for all to see, consider having a professional editor review the project. We help you to ensure your ideas are organized and clearly laid out, and that there are no grammatical, spelling or punctuation errors.

Editing Services:

Substantive/Structural Editing:
Includes clarifying or reorganizing a manuscript for content and structure.

Stylistic Editing:
Focuses on clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, simplifying and polishing language, assisting with finding the right tone or voice, and other non-mechanical line-by-line editing.

Copy Editing:
This includes editing for spelling, punctuation, syntax, grammar, usage and other mechanics of style; checking for consistency of mechanics and for internal consistency of facts.
