Proofreading comes after a professional copyedit and is considered the last line of defense before publication.

Proofreading includes:

  • Comparing one version of a manuscript/document to another, removing errors from newest version

  • Comparing table of contents with chapter headings and page numbers

  • Final cleanup check before publication, looking for errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, typos


Fees are determined by project and may vary depending on the length of the manuscript and the level of proofreading required. A free sample edit of 5–7 pages will be used to help determine the timeline and type of proofreading required. Materials should already be formatted and ready for publication.
