Typically, when someone mentions editing as a broad term, they are thinking of a copyeditor. This role involves everything from finding nitpicky grammar errors to rearranging entire paragraphs for clarity. My goal as a copyeditor is to identify and clean up readability issues: grammar, distracting writing quirks, repetition, etc. I may also ask for clarification about confusing or inconsistent sentences or plot points. As a copyeditor, I try to make as few changes as possible to retain your voice, while also fixing anything that may confuse your reader.
