Custom Content Creations
Following your directions and vision, and cultivating your ideas to create original, quality, engaging content in your voice, the tone of your business, or the style of your publication. Copy-editing is complimentary to this service.
Reworking, Rewriting, Revising (Content Creations)
Reworking, rewriting and revising material that
a) 'has the gist down’,
b) feels 'stuck', and/or
c) updating existing material
to transform the material into quality, engaging content. Copy-editing is complimentary to this service.
Substantive editing focuses on the work as a whole, developing, organising and structuring content, and cultivating ideas and concepts. I take your goals, requirements and the scope of the work into consideration to advise you how to best achieve your aims from a writing and editorial perspective. Guidance may be offered on reworking or rewriting parts of the text, suggesting the inclusion of additional material and/or the exclusion of certain sections. Substantive editing always precedes copy-editing, formatting and proofreading.
Also know as line-editing or sub-editing, copy-editing focuses on correcting errors and inconsistencies in grammar, punctuation, spelling, usage, phrasing, facts and more. Copy editors may also undertake research in order to confirm facts and sources, and compile references. Copy-editing may be light, medium or heavy depending on what the material requires.
The last stage of editing before publication. Proofreading focuses on correcting errors and inconsistencies in spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, formatting and spacing based on the style guidelines set down by the copy-editor. Mechanical and typographical errors inadvertently introduced during the typesetting, layout and formatting stages are addressed at this stage. Highly recommended for work otherwise ready for publication or submission.
