Copy editing requires a clear understanding of spelling and grammar, but even more than that, it requires curiosity, patience and attention to detail. Excellent communication skills help, too: A good copy editor works with an author to make his or her work shine, ensuring that the message isn't hindered by mechanics.
I've copy edited a wide range of materials, including movie listings, fashion magazines, cookbooks and resumés. I'd be happy to copy edit your project – please get in touch for an estimate.
