Sure this crossed your mind...
- Does my project require editing or proofreading?
Editing checks for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation in copy that ideally has not been formatted yet. But it also addresses things like syntax, usage of the right words, redundancies and consistent use of voice, style, sentence and paragraph construction. It does not include changes in content, nor does it always ensure that the written document is logical, factually complete, or accurate; but it does result in clean, decisive writing that is error-free. Editing should always precede proofreading
Proofreading should be the last step in preparation of a document that has already been edited and formatted. In proofreading, I check for any remaining errors and inconsistencies in use of grammar, punctuation and format. Proofreaders do not change the content of a piece and doesn’t make editorial decisions, but ensure that whatever is written conforms to the style guide prevalent.
- What writing assignments can you do for us?
Anything from feature writing to interviews and event coverage for magazines, to newsletters and formal reports for companies. For publications - stories assigned by the editor or pitched by me based on an editorial calendar. For companies - projects assigned by the hiring manager or any ideas I may suggest for clients.
