Copy editor and proofreader

Fact-checker, headline writer

Having trouble getting your copy to flow smoothly? Keep making mistakes? Want
headlines that POP off the screen? Then you have found the answer. Copy
editing and headline writing are available to improve websites or other media.
Proofreading and fact-checking also offered. A copy editor's responsibilities
include ensuring correct spelling, subject-verb agreement, consistent verb
tense, and proper syntax and grammar. A copy editor can also make suggestions
about an article's tone and whether the work is in poor taste, which would
save the writer from embarrassment and unwanted controversy. Fact-checking is
also a key function for copy editors. If a writer's facts are wrong his/her
credibility will sink among readers. Good headlines are a must. An article
can be wonderfully written, but a boring headline will turn away many
potential readers. Headlines must also be spelled correctly and factually
accurate while capturing the spirit of the article. Pages capture readers'
attention when the headline can also be interpreted as describing an
accompanying picture. For example, a picture of a botched hold on a potential
game-winning field goal could run with the headline: LOSING THEIR GRIP. The
combination of a photo with a descriptive headline can steer more readers to
what the web designer, or newspaper or magazine editor, wants people to read.
Even a pedestrian story can draw more readers than a better-written piece if
the poorer article has a better headline. Proofreading is the last line of
defense before customers or readers see your work. It's amazing how many
mistakes can be found on a hard-copy proof or a computer screen in a
different font. Many times our eyes can just scan over simple mistakes (like
typos) when we are using the same kind of font or screen to edit material.
