I offer several levels of copyediting. Please take a moment to read through each level to determine which would be the best for you.
Light Copyedit: Corrects errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, and style; and also flags major inaccuracies and inconsistencies within the narrative. This includes one editing pass.
Medium Copyedit: Corrects errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, and style; checks citations or key facts; and flags any inaccuracies and inconsistencies within the narrative; it also flags any redundancy, repetition, poor word choice, wordiness, overuse of the passive voice, poor logic or lack of clarity, incorrect idiomatic usage, and biased language. This includes one editing pass.
Proofread: Ensures consistency with spelling and style choices (I do not make style choices, I only ensure choices are handled uniformly); corrects minor errors with punctuation, grammar, and usage; and checks for consistent formatting throughout the document. This was a final eyes pass and no major inaccuracies are checked for correction. This includes one pass.
Pairing a light or medium copyedit with a proofread will give a 10 percent discount.
If you are unsure what type of edit you need, I’d be happy to complete a five-page sample edit to help determine which level would be appropriate.
