Rewriting, Editing & Proofreading

Call me Hawk-Eye, when it comes to editing and proofing copy to refine and enhance the quality of any written work.

The devil is in the detail.

To the trained eye, an extra space between words, wrong punctuation, wrong grammar, misuse of phrases in the wrong context, long unwieldy sentences, wrong structure that leads to ‘burying the lede’ etc. – all stand out like a sore thumb!

And, edit you must!

Rewriting, editing and proofreading are key skills that I’ve honed as a journalist, and I put them to good use to enhance the quality of any written work that passes by my desk.

My biggest pet peeve

I’m simply flummoxed by the inadvertent errors in copy (that were not there in the original text) that magically appear on the website or on design collaterals. This happens primarily because the copy passes through many hands before it is made visible to the reader. Something as small as a punctuation can change the meaning of your message that goes out to your audience. All it takes is one exercise in proofreading to eliminate these. So, never underestimate the value of a proof-reader!
