Professional Proofreading & Copyediting Services
Jack Hollander, principal
Contact me over on the CONTACT page to describe what you're looking for and the turnaround time you require. I will respond within 24 hours with a price estimate for the project.
Prices are typically quoted either by the page or project (or, occasionally, by the hour). Once you have accepted the quote, I will send you a confirmation with instructions for submitting your document(s) electronically. (I'm happy to work with paper and pen, too!)
Typically I require a 50% deposit, with the balance due upon completion of the project.
I provide efficient professional proofreading and copyediting services for clients of all types. Send me your articles, brochures, publications, resumes, correspondence, and more. My goal is to help you present yourself and your work in the best possible light!
Proofreading is a crucial step before finalization of any document. It is not always easy to spot all the errors that can mar your work, and automated spell and grammar checks can only catch some of these errors. I troubleshoot for typos, errors in usage, inconsistencies and problems in formatting, and other details.
Proofreading often spills over into light copyediting, of course, in which I work to clarify what you are trying to say, without major rewriting of the text. A copyediting project may require light or much heavier editing, which might involve reorganization; attention to matters of style; elimination of confusion, incoherence, and redundancies; cleaning up of citations; and careful preservation of your authorial voice.
