Woman Typing

What can I do for you?

And what is a proofreader, anyways?

I work to make your text ready for submission. This includes correcting grammar, spelling, punctuation, clarity (such as in word choice), and consistency in language and formatting.

 

I don't offer suggestions for reworking structure, improving content, or rewriting passages (though I may offer some helpful ways of rephrasing things for flow). This would be the work of a copy editor.

Proofreading is the final stage in the publishing chain, making sure everything is perfect and ready to go to print – or in this case, be ready to submit for review or grading.
