Copy Editing

(Editing concerned with correcting grammar, punctuation, and proper word usage)

The Next Chapter also provides Copy Editing services for those texts that are in their final or nearly-final forms. Each sentence is reviewed carefully so that all errors of spelling, punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and word usage are corrected while your meaning and voice are preserved. A copy edit focuses on detail and description consistency, and can include fact-checking minor details, formatting elements like text messages and letters, and more. Generally, this is the final touch to a manuscript after more heavy edits have already been completed.
