If you have a blog post, article, or piece of marketing that you are ready to publish, I will proofread it for basic spelling, punctuation and grammar errors.
I will also check that any specific information (such as web and email addresses) is correct and that the piece of writing makes sense and has cohesion.
For those longer pieces of writing, such as newsletters, websites and magazines, I will proofread for typographical and other errors, including punctuation, spelling and grammar.
This in depth review of the piece is more creative, and will also ensure that the style is consistent and address any inaccuracies or inconsistencies such as incorrect use of tense, paragraphing and content.
Substantial editing and re-writing
If you have a basic outline text but it needs ‘polishing’ and re-writing to ensure that it conveys the right message then the editing process is more substantial and takes longer.
This is normally appropriate for self-published works, and will include basic proofreading, suggested additions or amendments, and comments about style and content.
