I offer several levels of copyediting. Please take a moment to read through each level to determine which would be the best for you. If you are unsure which is right for you, please contact me, and we can discuss what you are looking for.
Light Copyedit: I will correct errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, and style; and I will flag major inaccuracies and inconsistencies within the narrative. A light copyedit includes two editing passes.
Medium Copyedit: I will correct errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, and style; check citations or key facts; and flag any inaccuracies and inconsistencies within the narrative. I will also correct any redundancy, repetition, poor word choice, wordiness, overuse of the passive voice, poor logic or lack of clarity, incorrect idiomatic usage, and biased language. A medium copyedit includes two editing passes.
Proofread: I will ensure consistency with spelling and style choices (I will not make style choices but will ensure the author’s choices are handled uniformly). I will correct minor errors in punctuation, grammar, and usage; and I will check for consistent formatting throughout the document. This was a final eyes pass, and no major inaccuracies will be flagged or corrected. A proofread includes one pass.
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.
