copyediting: “an editor who prepares copy for the typesetter.”
prior to completing my editing certificate, i, too, was unfamiliar with the term “copyeditor.” editing is a multi-step process, regardless of whether you are editing a corporate document, book, magazine article, or news piece. if you have a manuscript (in-process or complete), i welcome the opportunity to provide developmental edits, copyediting, or proofreading services. it is an honor to collaborate with fellow writers and creatives!
