Who we are
Elite Editing is a full-service editing and writing firm dedicated to producing high-quality content for a wide variety of clients.
One of our clients is a company that publishes greeting cards, calendars, children’s books, and planners, and all those documents need patient, precise proofing. Readers need to have a sharp, methodical approach and a high tolerance for repetition to ensure dates are sequential and correct, holidays fall in the right place, captions are spelled correctly, and so on.
Our job is to make sure that we root out all errors. As these items are literally printed before they’re offered for sale, there is no quick fix for errors found too late.
Who you are
You are an experienced editor with a sharp eye for detail. Catching typographical errors and making copy clean and perfect gives you deep satisfaction.
This work is almost entirely proofreading. There’s usually very little copy, and it’s mostly in decent shape but needs to be carefully scrutinized for typo-like errors.
The work is steady and ongoing, with a few seasonal surges and a few slower weeks.
We’ve been partnering with this client for years, so while there’s a sharp learning curve, we have all the answers you need, and editors typically get the hang of things very quickly.
