Creative Writing Solutions
We provide a range of services that can help get your creative project in shape, whatever stage of the project you are at. We provide proofreading services for projects that are near completion. We also provide extensive copy-editing to help you at earlier stages. This service will improve the formatting, accuracy, and style of the text.
We abide by the 5 Cs and will ensure that your project is Clear, Correct, Concise, Comprehensible, and Consistent. It is not just about dotting the ‘i’s and crossing the ‘t’s. We will:
- Correct errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, style, and usage
- correct inconsistencies and illiminate repetition
- clarify ambiguities and inaccuracies with the author
- ensure that the text is structured logically and coherently
- organise illustrations and ensure that content and accompanying labels are consistent with the text
- identify legal issues relating to copyright, libel, obscenity, blasphemy, or incitement to racial hatred
Specifically, we will address the following areas:
Ensure that language is suitable for intended audience, and that any jargon, abbreviations and technical language are explained.
Is it too long or short? Organisation of footnotes, glossary, index and appendices.
Content & Structure
Is anything missing or redundant? Is the order logical? Ensure that there are an adequate amount of headings that break up the text and improve legibility and readability.
Ensure that paragraphs break up the page and introduce nbew ideas.
It is best practice to keep sentences short and concise.
Ensure consistency of language, spelling,writing style, structure and format.
Illustrations & Tables
Make sure that relevant illustrations support the text. Text referring to tables should comment on the data, not repeat it. Ensure that tables and illustrations are in the correct place.
Facts, spelling, names, dates and quotations will be checked and corrected when necessary
Check that syle of language and writing is consistent across the document
Ensure that all material adheres to copyright law, and that permission from relevant copyright holders is obtained.
We have worked with screenwriters, playwrights, and authors of fiction and factual material.
