Why Editing and Proofreading?
You’ve just put your heart and soul into a project — be it a grant proposal to fund your research project, an academic paper or article that gets you to the next step of your career, a science-fiction novel you’ve been dreaming of your whole life, or even a blog post that will get people’s attention and bring traffic to your site — now what?
Do you publish and hope for the best? What if you missed a typo, misspelled a word, have punctuation errors, or worse — an issue with your research and facts? It could change the meaning of your work and how people interpret your message.
Small errors make a huge difference. Error-free material builds trust and establishes you as an expert, but mistakes do just the opposite. That's where we can assist you. One Small Step will look over your writing and find the small mistakes, without changing your voice or message. We’ll help make your project perfect and allow your message to speak for itself.
Our goal is to perfect your work.
We want the same thing — for your readers to understand exactly what you mean and to be inspired when they read your writing. Why don’t we work together to make your project shine?
We offer all levels of editing –
* from basic proofreading: a cursory review for spelling, punctuation, and formatting errors
* to copy editing: a deeper look at technical issues like consistency, clarity, and grammar
* to content editing: an in-depth assessment of writing content/style as well as fact-checking and researching key topics
At the end of the day, the goal is to preserve your voice and your message but also to present the most polished writing possible. We want your readers to trust you and think of your work as expert material. So, contact us to see how we can fine-tune your project and inspire your readers together. We look forward to hearing from you!
