We offer two kinds of services: standard and optimized for inclusion. Services are offered a la carte or bundled into a custom package based on your needs. If you aren’t sure what you need, then start here.
Proofreading is the final pass before a project goes into production. It involves identifying and correcting obvious, glaring errors in pre-publication materials.
Line-Editing (formerly Copy Editing) involves checking content for sentence structure and punctuation. It is line-by-line editing for clarity, precision, and style. Queries are used as needed and consistency is enforced. Check the availability calendar. Schedule this service online.
Developmental Editing offers structural changes to ensure cohesion, suggest logical arrangements for content, and point out opportunities to fully flesh-out an intended message or narrative.
Publication Layout and Design is work that involves arranging your content (words and images) in preparation for publication. This includes print documents, online documents, and infographics.
Photo Research is assistance in finding photos and other artwork that match your message while keeping your primary and secondary audiences in mind.
Layout Conversion and Reconstruction is useful when the original file is not available but edits and updates are required to publish or re-publish a document. We can re-create the document for you.
Writing and Content Creation is important when you don’t have the bandwidth or the team members to create written materials and other content.
Writing Assistance is useful when you’ve done the bulk of the writing but extra help is needed to complete the project before editing begins.
Early-Project Media Consulting involves discussing ways to be inclusive and socially-responsible in the early stages of a project, so that eleventh-hour interventions are not necessary.
Sensitivity Reading and Editing requires reading a document to flag potential issues such as problematic themes, racial tropes, ableist language, inappropriate metaphors, or other harmful writing- or thought-based pitfalls that can alienate a reader or produce strong, negative reactions. Sensitivity readings and editing are strongly encouraged, especially when the writing addresses or is about historically-marginalized groups.
Re-writing/Deep Editing for Inclusion is an opportunity for you to rework your documents to take into account a variety of constituents who may read your materials. This helps reinforce inclusion.
