Why is editing important?

Even authors who know exactly what they mean to say don’t always convey it clearly on the page, much
less catch basic mistakes. This is because writers are too close to their material to be objective. That’s where a professional editor is indispensible, but make no mistake: proofreaders are just as important.

Our Editing Services

1. Content Editing

This type of editing is for manuscripts in need of restructuring, redevelopment, content addition or deletion. A content editor will make suggestions on reorganization of information, content development, rewriting, artwork placement, front and back matter, and overall clarity of writing.

2. Copy/Line Editing

This type of edit is for manuscripts that are structurally sound but need evaluation regarding grammar, usage, flow, clarity of writing, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization. A copy edit may also include editing of chapter heads and front and back matter, including the index.

3. Proofreading

Proofreading involves a final reading of the text to make sure all edits were made and no new errors were introduced into the manuscript during the editing stages. Oftentimes the proofreader will look for errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization, as well as conformity to the Chicago Manual of Style.
