Copy-editing is the mid-way point of preparing any type of written item for presentation and communication. The "copy" is the raw material. It can be anything: a novel, website, journal article, thesis, leaflet, podcast, textbook, examination paper, menu, flyer, or even a tee-shirt. Want to get in great writing shape? Click the pencil.


Proofreading is the editorial task of checking two "proofs" one against the other for textual and production errors, and depending on the project comes at the final stage of the production cycle or several times throughout. If you want to make the right impression, click the pencil.

Website design, hosting, and SEO

Having a well-designed website is vital for any business. We know it’s a common refrain but it's no less true. Investing in a good web presence is no longer an option in the marketing mix.
