Highlighting our editing services. Did you know that PRC offers outsourced editing services? In recent months, we have been editing the Business Pulse magazine as well as a wide variety of corporate letters and media releases, staff newsletters, and blog articles. This is a valuable offering for business leaders who want to write their own content, and then have a second set of eyes to ensure grammar, punctuation and message clarity. If you write it, we can edit it! Here's what we offer.
