Copyediting

Even the most skilled writer needs an editor to look over their work with unbiased eyes. I'm here to help catch those dangling modifiers and style guide errors that go unseen. 

I follow copyediting standards and adhere to the four Cs of copyediting: clarity, correctness, coherence, and consistency.

Proofreading

Proofreading is the final stage before your work is released into the world. A proofreader looks for any last-minute grammar and punctuation changes, odd line breaks, heading styles, line length, typographical issues, etc.

At this stage rewrites are done and you are ready to publish.
