Tell Me What You Need and Book Your Copy Edit
Complete a form giving me the details of your manuscript or document. I'll need to know the type of document I'll be working on, how big it is, and other information that will help me understand what is required. Things like: What is the purpose of this manuscript? Who is your intended audience? Do you have a style guide preference?
Once I have a good idea of what you need, and your timeline for the project, I'll confirm your booking.
Send Me Your Manuscript or Document
Send me your document in your preferred format. You can send electronic documents or paper copy.
I'll work methodically through a comprehensive checklist to proofread and copy edit your work. Your typos, spelling and punctuation errors, grammar, and formatting issues will be corrected or noted by marking changes in your document.
To make changes in sentences I'll either directly alter them in the document or add comments at the side, giving alternative options, explanations and examples.
I'll provide a brief report, highlighting consistent issues for your attention, with advice and feedback that you'll find helpful for your future writing.
I'll keep in touch with you through the process so that any queries can be quickly addressed and to keep you informed of progress.
Your Manuscript or Document is Returned
Once the copy edit is complete, I'll return your document to you for your perusal. You'll finalise your document by making the corrections and suggested alterations. Make sure you allow time to complete this work when you're considering the deadline for your project.
You'll have a manuscript or document that you can present or publish, confident that it is a high quality professional document, containing language that is clear, flowing, and fresh. You'll make a positive impact on your readers.
