Forum rules
This forum is for questions that don't fit into a more specific workshop's forum. (If there's a more specific forum that's appropriate, please post there.) For example, a post about writing science fiction belongs in the SF writing forum, but a post about writing that applies to all writers could go here. Questions about the general nature of the critique.org workshops could go here, but not about a specific workshop.

Proofreading and editing

Postby crit34453 » Sun Apr 08, 2018 12:10 pm

You might think proofreading is an outdated skill, laboriously done on paper using a red pen and old-fashioned symbols, and only relevant to the book publishing industry.

Well, I hope to persuade you that this is certainly not the case and that the common spellchecker is simply no match for a professional proofreader.

Proofreading provides the final polish to your words, ensuring clarity of message. It can provide peace of mind that your communications are the best they can be, and it frees you up to concentrate on what you do best. Proofreading can help you avoid embarrassment, negative feedback, and the time and cost of correcting errors.

Think of proofreading as the last line of defence before facing the world. You have showered, brushed your teeth, put together a great outfit and eaten a healthy breakfast; proofreading is the last look in the mirror to ensure you don’t have anything stuck in your teeth or a coffee stain on your shirt.

I would encourage everyone to build proofreading into their content or book publishing process, be willing to pay for it and recognise it as a valuable tool within your Content Strategy.
