Proofreading

When you’re concentrating on content, it’s easy to miss typos and other small formatting errors. A fresh reading of your document by Elisabeth Ptak will help make sure your writing is error-free. Her professional review of spelling, grammar, punctuation, and syntax with corrections noted will improve any project, whether it’s a newsletter, a book manuscript, or a media campaign with multiple elements.

Substantive or developmental editing

Many creative projects benefit from the objective eye of a person who can make suggestions about reorganizing, re-writing, or revising. An experienced editor, Elisabeth works with each client to help present his or her writing in a clear way so readers can appreciate the author’s perspective, point of view, storytelling ability, and vision.
