Word Cat Editorial Services provides copyediting, proofreading,
structural and stylistic editing, and related services to publishers, businesses, and individuals.
Each level and type of editing fulfills a specific purpose in the editorial process. My goal is to understand the overall context of each client's project and fit my editorial work to those needs. For example, as a copyeditor, my role is to help an author communicate effectively with readers by editing for clarity, consistency, and accuracy.
When an author's text is clear and accessible to readers, it's like a key that turns easily in a lock. The reader can open the door and step inside the author's world.
Back outside in the arena of day to day business, copyediting is a critical link in the publishing process. As a copyeditor, I am guided by the practicalities of time, budget, and the context of each project.
