Editing and Copyediting from an Author's Viewpoint

I have posted blogs from Taylor Stevens before -
She writes insightful articles about the publishing industry.  This one is particularly important to me because it's about the editing vs. copyediting process.  And since I am working to become a legitimate copyeditor (originally, I thought  it was to become an editor), I thought I would share her distinction with you.  When I am ready to hang out my copyediting shingle, I will shout it from every mountaintop (and even from every valley).

Why this ad?


  1. Thanks for sharing this, I had an idea of the differences but I having them spelt out is useful

  2. I agree. I have actually copyedited some local authors and didn't even know that was what I was doing!
