If you’ve ever written anything, chances are you’ve wanted someone to read it over after you were done. When we write, it’s relieving to have another person catch awkward mistakes lurking in our text and ensure that our writing is understandable and clear.
Especially when we’re writing for business — when the way we present ourselves reflects on the quality of the company we represent — it’s important to have an editor review our work. That’s as true for independent small businesses here in Bellingham as it is for large corporations in Seattle and beyond.
What do editors do, exactly?
Essentially, the job of an editor is to improve language. Editorial services encompass a broad array of activities, including fixing grammar issues, guiding content and direction, improving clarity and enhancing readability.
You’ll find editors engaged in a variety of activities, such as reviewing blog posts to be read by the public, guiding the direction of magazine articles or editing public speeches to ensure that the message is clear and to the point.
