Editing

Just because we have creative aspirations doesn’t mean we can’t be grammar nerds and sticklers for clear, concise language – they aren’t mutually exclusive.

Editing is about making communication better, eliminating repetition, pretension and waste – and ensuring readers/viewers remain interested.

We edit and proofread PhD theses, blogs, web content, memoirs, short stories – even emails – and we offer three forms of editing:

Substantive/structural editing

involves comprehensive editing of the writing, structure and ideas within a document.

Copy editing

 involves editing at a grammatical level and ensures writing is consistent in style and layout.

Proofreading

comprises a final, detailed check of a document after it has been edited and formatted.

Some of our clients

Lee Kofman – published author (Imperfect, The Runaway Bride)

In the daily slog of hard labour otherwise known simply as ‘writing’, once again I was lucky with the people in my life. Bradley Dawson, one of my oldest friends in Australia and the first reader of most of my work, kept asking me gently but insistently ‘and how did you feel about that?’ every so often as he edited the first draft of Imperfect.
