Proofreading for Publishing House
Natalie Nyquist


One of the gateway opportunities to regularly freelancing with publishing houses is proofreading. How do you get started proofreading? What are some of the differences between contracting with a private client versus a publisher? What software and tools are used in proofreading, and what do publishers expect you to know? Natalie walks you through a variety of proofreading project types, including first pass, second pass, final pass, format pass, and how these proofs can be done on PDF documents versus Word documents. The last part of the session will be guided by the needs and questions of attendees.
