With copyediting and proofreading, the goal is to improve readability. You get improvements to the small details of the manuscript to ensure your story shines.
Copyediting involves sentence- and paragraph-level review for things like accuracy, consistency, diction, and clarity, as well as grammar and punctuation. World-building is key in fantasy and science fiction; in a copyedit, you’ll get a review of all the details to make sure they make sense in your world and are applied consistently throughout.
Proofreading is most effective when it’s done after your manuscript has been formatted for publishing. You’ll get a last review to catch lingering errors in grammar and punctuation as well as making sure no errors were introduced as part of the formatting process.
