Services

  • Line Editing

    A thoughtful, line-by-line analysis to tighten sentence structure, word choice, and syntax (including awkward construction, cliches, and repeated phrases) for sharp, clear language that is consistent with the author’s tone and voice. This could include consultation with the author to clarify meaning and intent.

  • Copy Editing

    A careful, line-by-line review of mechanics, including grammar, spelling, punctuation, and syntax to improve readability and conciseness, and to maintain consistent style (Chicago Manual of Style).

  • Proofreading

    A final, laser-sharp polish of a manuscript before publication, focusing on typos, correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and spacing/format.
