Whether fiction or nonfiction, every piece of writing requires careful proofreading. This covers spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as well as typographical consistency.


Proofreading is usually one of the last steps in the editorial process, once the argument or narrative, voice, and body of the essay or story have been polished.

Copy Editing

& Line Editing 

Copy editing focuses on the technical aspects of the body of your text, including spelling, grammar, and punctuation, but includes making or checking a style sheet to ensure consistency in terminology,  fact-checking as needed, and going over references or inconsistencies in a manuscript.


In line editing, the editor reviews the overall style of your work, focusing on voice, communication, and clarity.
