EDITING & PROOFREADING
Is what you want to say just not coming out properly?
Sometimes we have all these grand ideas, but they just...aren't quite right. You know what you want to say, you just don't know how to say it. That's where editing comes in! Editing isn't simply looking at the small things like spelling and punctuation, it also encompasses the bigger picture stuff, like content, structure, and progression.
Sub-editing involves looking at the content as a whole and adjusting the layout and structure of the work to ensure it has a logical progression of ideas and is easy to follow. It stands for substantial editing because it involves a lot of substantial reshuffling.
Copy-editing is where I look at your work a little closer: we identify sentences that need re-writing, phrases that don't work, and problematic grammar issues. This is where your writing is edited to increase clarity and conciseness, ensuring your work is easy to read and comprehend.
Proofreading is the last aspect of editing, where I look at the smaller details in your writing: spelling, punctuation, and small grammar issues. This is where we cross the T's and dot the I's to guarantee error-free work.
Don't need all of these done?
No worries, just pick the one that suits you!
Editing can cost a pretty penny if you want all three levels. But, the good news is that most of us don't need all three! Sub-editing is a niche editing style typically used for longer projects like novels, manuals, or reports. Usually, businesses are only looking for copywriting and proofreading (and I offer a discounted price if you get both!).
I edit a range of projects, from large manuals to simple resumes. I've even proofread social media posts for Instagram and Facebook!
It doesn't matter what you need, I'll ensure it's error-free.
