Copy Editing 

 

 

 

 

Copy editing is a highly technical process that deals with the nitty-gritty aspects of your writing in order to perfect and polish it. It goes beyond the elements of basic proofreading to

 

  • Correct faulty spelling, grammar, and punctuation

  • Correct minor to moderate issues with syntax and sentence structure

  • Fix incorrect word usage

  • Ensure consistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, and capitalization

  • Correct problems with parallel structure

  • Flag incorrect vocabulary, sayings, and figures of speech

  • Track minor to moderate continuity of plot, setting, and character traits

  • Highlight ambiguous or incorrect statements

 

All suggested edits are made using the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word.
