My Quick Word
I believe that editing is about precision with flair. It's where the concrete (in the form of proper grammar) meets the abstract (in the form of style). I love to work at this intersection.
A good copyeditor makes room for clarity: removing obstacles (misspellings, mistakes, run-on sentences) so that the mission, thesis statement, or outstanding job candidate can shine through.
Simply put: copyeditors exist to sharpen the already powerful written word.
