Editing Services

Whether you’ve written a critical interoffice memo, direct mail copy, or a complete business book, you need to ensure your message isn’t obscured by sloppy writing. The more important the document, the more important it is that you have a good editor — such as The Better Editor — review it for consistency, logic, style, and proper grammar.

  • Substantive Editing
    Know what you want to say, but not sure you’re saying it clearly? I will review your memo, newsletter, or book, revising and rewriting it where needed to get your message across as effectively and readably as possible. Substantive editing may require that significant changes be made to your initial draft; I will make recommendations and complete the necessary revisions for you.

  • Copy Editing and Proofreading
    Whether you prefer the AP Style used by most newspapers and popular magazines, or a more academic approach like APA or Chicago Manual of Style, I will read your document carefully for grammar, punctuation, style, formatting, and so on. I’ll be checking for consistency and ensuring you haven’t made any serious errors that affect the meaning of your words.
