Copy Editing vs. Proofreading

Artisan Talent Tip: Be clear when working as a freelancer or employing freelance editors whether you want your material copy edited or proofread. They require some of the same skills but each takes a different focus, with a copy editor focused on producing a readable piece that meets the publication's goals, and a proofreader focused on eliminating small errors that could be distracting to the reader.
