Effective writing needs to be:
- Clear, concise, efficient
- Accurate and free of errors
- Persuasive and in a style suitable to your readers
Just like the clothes you wear, the office you’ve decorated, and the branding you’ve selected to represent your company, the impression you make in writing is vital to your success.
Clumsy word usage, text that contains typos or grammatical errors, a style that is inappropriate for your audience will reflect badly on your reputation in a competitive market and can leave your readers frustrated or possibly looking elsewhere.
Students, academics and authors will also reap the rewards of papers and publications that are clear and free of mistakes, easy to understand and capture the attention – and imaginations – of their readers.
There are three options you can choose when employing the services of an Editor. The level you choose will depend on the outcome you are hoping to achieve. Click on the links below to learn about each of these options. You can also download a table that offers brief descriptions of what the three levels of options actually do. This will help you decide which level of editing best suits your needs.
A poem by Anon
I have a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marquees for my revue
Miss steaks eye cannot sea.
When eye strike a quay, right a word
I weight four it two say
Whether eye am wrong oar wright
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee four two late
And eye can put the error rite
It's rarely, rarely grate.
I've run this poem threw it
I'm shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect in its weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
(Hoorah for spell-checkers!)
