Writing Resources: Editing & Proofreading

Editing and Proofreading are an important piece of the writing process--this task examines the surface level linguistic elements of your paper.  Editing and proofreading are not the same as revising, which takes a look at ideas like organization, transitions, audience, purpose, among other things.  The policy of Elon University's Writing Center is not to edit your paper for you, but if you indicate that you would like help with the mechanics of your paper, we will help you with surface-level grammar issues.
