Proofreading: Your manuscript will be corrected for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.
Copyediting: Whether it's adding dialogue tags, nixing flowery adjectives, or reintroducing that flashback into the main narrative, your manuscript will be revised with suggestions to improve pacing and narrative flow.
Fact-checking: For manuscripts that rely on historical, scientific, political, or other facts, I will make note of any factual errors.

Should a particular project call for a different style guide, make note of it on your contact form. I can also revise according to UK English grammar and spelling, as needed.
