Project Details

What We Need
  • Review of up to 20 pages of copy for grammar, style, tone, and consistency
  • Advice on how to write effective copy going forward
Additional Details

I have a draft document that I need to have copyedited by someone with fresh eyes and limited knowledge of the content to ensure the document is accessible to a broad audience.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a staff member committed to the project, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have solid clean final draft ready for editting, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We want to use the document to influence policy and practice so it must be crisp, accessible and absent any typos.
