WHAT LEVEL OF EDITING DOES YOUR DOCUMENT NEED?

Our services cover different extents of editing. Read below so you can make the best choice!

Proofreading

For spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

What is proofreading?

When we proofread, we check for grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors. We may also flag areas that require further attention.

Do I need proofreading?

Choose proofreading if your document has already been edited or is ready for publication but needs a final check. If your document requires editing (such as correcting usage of vocabulary, sentence structure, and flow), please use our editing service.

Proofreading overview

It is difficult for writers to see their own mistakes. This is why it is essential to always hire a professional proofreader or editor to check your document.

Proofreaders check for correct punctuation, spelling, grammar, capitalization, and spacing.

As a professional proofreading service, we are familiar with the most common mistakes that writers make. These mistakes often seem simple, but they can be detrimental to the writer’s intended meaning.

Going through a document with a fine-toothed comb may present itself as a burden for one who is not skilled to do so. We understand this! That is why Skylight Editorial has developed the most affordable proofreading service that you will find on the web. Our proofreading service has helped many worldwide.

Our expert proofreaders are trained in the art of proofreading and are masters of English. We can help you polish your document.

Copy Editing

For editing of vocabulary, syntax, flow, and more!

What is copy editing?

When we edit, we check for issues with grammar, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary usage, sentence structure, flow, and style.

Do I need copy editing?

Choose copy editing if your document has issues with phrasing, vocabulary usage, tone, style, and clarity.

Copy editing overview

Copy editing is a more detailed process than proofreading. With proofreading, our editors only check for correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. With copy editing, the consistency and logical structure of the text are checked, and suggestions are made or implemented for alternative words or sentences.

Even the best writers may need help conveying an idea. You may need help with consistency, tone, style, and logic in your work. The clearer an idea, the easier it is for your readers to follow.

Our editors will scrutinize your work to make or implement suggestions to improve the clarity of the document.

Editors work to remove cases of awkward and/or unnecessary phrasing, wordy sentences, and unclear ideas.

Manuscript Critique

For assessment of your creative work.

Do I need a manuscript critique?

A manuscript critique is perfect for the first or final stage of your creative piece. It is best used to determine the potential impact of your work on your intended audience.

Manuscript critique overview

One of the biggest challenges any creative person may face is receiving unbiased and objective feedback on their work.

With a manuscript critique, you can receive honest feedback on your work, which will help you identify areas of improvement. Though you can always ask friends and/or family to critique your work, the unbiased opinion of an experienced editor will be of extreme benefit.

Our editors will critique your manuscript, assessing its plot, characterization, coherence, organization, consistency, and salability. Not only will you receive feedback, you will also receive suggestions on fixes and revisions.
