Don’t fail at proofreading. Proofreading is not copy editing.
Copy editing is about significant changes to sentences and paragraphs.
But writers often forget the importance of proofreading.
The Proofreading Guide is for writers and editors of any genre who are looking to develop their proofreading skills and prevent embarrassing errors in written documents.
The proofreading stage is the last chance to catch errors before colleagues, publishers, application committees, and the general public read your writing. Effective proofreading is about polishing your documents to impress readers with pristine prose and design.
Yet proofreading does not get enough attention as it’s often rushed or avoided altogether.
This is a comprehensive course on the subject. First, I explain how to develop the right mindset to catch errors. I then show where most errors lurk. I examine the most common errors in words, punctuation, and design. I additionally provide unique techniques for making your proofreading work easier and more effective.
These tips come from my 20+-year career in editing and proofreading jobs. I’ve edited thousands and thousands of written documents and I use these techniques every day.
