Copy editing enhances communication.
I work to ensure that your writing is clear, correct, concise, consistent, and comprehensible. I work to make sure that your writing says what you want it to say without errors, inconsistencies, and inaccuracies that will distract the reader and reflect badly on you — or worse, obscure or distort your intended meaning.
Here's what one happy client had to say about the benefits of copy editing:
Jane, I've quickly read through your 'clean' version, which has accomplished what I wanted. I'm looking forward to seeing what you removed and changed, because I have barely noticed the missing 700 words.
Thank you! I have had a lifetime love and appreciation for 'you people' who can clearly organize subjects which are probably new to you, and put them into easily readable form. It has been a pleasure working with you.
