There is often confusion about the difference between a freelance copy editor and a freelance copywriter. The following pointers will clear up the confusion.
• Copy writers and copy editors are masters of language. Both use words to the height of their rhetorical power to send a message to an audience.
• Copy writers create effective and influential text. This, however, is where their job ends.
• A copy editor steps in to clean up, fact check and doctor copy to give the final product the necessary polish. This usually involves proofreading as well.
