Copyediting is editing at the sentence level. This includes editing grammar, punctuation, spelling, mechanics of style, wordiness, and internal consistency. We include stylistic editing in this as well, which addresses word order, flow, and clarity. This is where the magic happens!

Proofreading is quality management more than editing. This step takes place once the manuscript has been typeset and is in PDF form.


One tiny error in a sentence can change the entire meaning of your words, and errors in formatting can be distracting. We have an eye for detail and will catch errors that could decrease the quality of your work.

What you get: a marked-up PDF

Manuscripts often need more than one round of editing and sometimes multiple rounds at each step of editing.

After completing a complimentary sample edit for you and assessing what your manuscript needs, we will put together an editing package that fits your goals and your manuscript.
