Proofreading and editing servicesWe specialise in helping students, educators, professionals, writers and self-publishers
We specialise in professional proofreading and editing services. We work with students – undergraduates, postgraduates, academics, professors, doctorates – as well as educators, self-publishers and professionals.
We recognise that students have tight deadlines and we know the stresses that arise as these deadlines loom closer. Students can choose between having their papers proofread only or proofread and edited.
Proofreading and editing are different skills and we outline why on our recent blog post. Proofreading is usually the final step in the production line and is concerned with ensuring that the document is free from errors with regards to spelling, punctuation and grammar.
An editor will look for errors within a document and fix these for the writer. They are primarily concerned with the document sentence structure, readability and clarity. Editing requires substantially more time and an understanding of writing rules.
We find that supporting our clients in this final step towards submitting their academic paper takes away any excess concerns or anxieties they may feel.
Virtual Storm has a background in training and education and as such understands the time and effort involved in preparing lesson plans and resources.
We work with university educators – lecturers, tutors and teachers – to support their administration needs, particularly when it comes to creating your lecture slides and notes/handouts.
We can proofread and edit your resources as well as create them. We can take your draft information and turn it into readable content within a PowerPoint presentation. We can use your notes to create handouts and worksheets that can be used for tutorials or extra tuition.
We have worked with educators from a number of universities across Australia and find that supporting these educators helps them to focus on the delivery of their teaching experiences rather than on administration activities.
Virtual Storm works with writers and self-publishers to support their proofreading and editing requirements, during e-book or novel production.
We work to ensure that your manuscript is proofread for consistency and can make editorial suggestions with regards to readability, clarity, tone, structure and formatting. We can work with our suppliers to support any image requirements, include your book cover, ensuring they are consistent in design and layout.
We can review your book online using the e-book software of your choice (we have experience using Smashwords and CreateSpace through Amazon) or we can review your document within Word before you upload it.
