What is Copyediting?

One service offered by Warner House Press is copyediting, but what exactly does this entail?

Less intensive than developmental editing, but more comprehensive than proofreading, a copyediting session involves checking spelling, grammar, syntax, and formatting issues throughout the document. Not only that, but special attention will be paid to consistency in formatting and content; things like plot holes or accidental contradictions.

The only thing not covered by copyediting is improvements and advice on the writer’s own style. That is included in our final tier, developmental editing.
