Writers commonly believe editing and proofreading are the same. They’re not. Editors focus on content and style, while proofreaders study detail and look for technical mistakes.
A proofreader searches your writing for errors before you submit your work to a contest judge, publisher, etc. This function follows editing and is the final step before the content is released.
These are the areas on which we focus:
4. Mechanics (typos, paragraph breaks, etc.)
5. Comma usage
7. Consistency in font size(s)
8. Uniformity in heading style(s)
9. Page numbering
10. Headers and footers
