Verbal Ink offers both editing and proofreading services—yet these are two very different crafts. Editing services are useful for a work-in-progress, while proofreading services are the final pass before submission. In both cases, we will bring out the very best in your writing. We are able to write documents for you as we also offer copywriting services.

Substantive editing is a comprehensive process that not only corrects spelling, punctuation, and grammar, but also revises the actual content of the writing. Editors offer suggestions on how to develop ideas and provide comments on the clarity or logic of the argument. Additionally, editing ensures adherence to a particular field’s style guide or other formatting requirements.

Proofreading, in contrast, doesn’t provide any feedback on your writing, but focuses solely on the technical aspects: spelling, grammar, linguistic errors, and format discrepancies such as line spacing, font continuity, and orphans and widows.
