I have been doing freelance copyediting work since 2013. I have worked for a local magazine, called NOISE & COLOR, as well as local authors Tom Thayer and Craig Lancaster.
I have been a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association since March, 2014.
I believe that good copyediting clarifies what you, the author, are trying to say; that it ensures proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling are used consistently; and that the style guide of your choice is followed.
When copyediting a project, I do any or all of the following, as needed:
- Correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation
- Correct word choice
- Ensure proper capitalization
- Basic fact-checking
