Copy-editing + Proofreading
You can only look over your own content so many times before you start to miss things only another set of eyes could hope to catch! Let Bright Eyes be your second set; to ensure that you are circulating error-free, polished documents from manuscripts to magazines to newspapers to company reports - we will make sure the professionalism and consistency is intact. No job is too big or small, and each project will be treated with the utmost respect and eagle-eyed detail.
But how is this done?
Clients from all over the world come to Bright Eyes for various editorial services. Simply email or snail mail your documents, and they will be returned to you in their perfected form via the method of your choice. All work is done by a native-born English speaker; projects that come through Bright Eyes are NEVER outsourced or sent overseas. You can be rest assured that your work is given expert attention and fully guaranteed.
Electronic submissions will be returned as clean, edited copies (red-lined or not, by request). Handwritten or typewritten hard copies will be returned with errors circled and indicated in red markings, with appropriate suggestions to the text in the margins.
