Hourly or by word
Grammar, punctuation, spelling, syntax
Are you using your semicolons properly? Are there typos or homophones in your manuscript? In fiction, does a character have blue eyes on one page and green eyes on another? Copyediting will check your grammar, punctuation, spelling, and word usage as well as making sure there aren’t any continuity errors.
Hourly, by word, or by page
Spelling, punctuation, layout
The last step before publication, proofreading checks for mechanical errors such as typos, incorrect punctuation, and word confusion. When applicable, I’ll also check for layout errors such as word stacks, rivers, widows and orphans, bad word breaks, and caption or directional mismatching.
The shorter the copy, the more an error stands out—and it’s just as hard to catch your own mistakes. Put your best foot forward by making sure your text is free of mistakes in spelling, grammar, and punctuation. This service is appropriate for ads, menus, business cards, billboards, job postings, blog posts under 300 words, and more.
