Lesser Known Editing & Proofreading Marks

Saturday, January 12, 2013

For those of you who've read our bios, you know that I MIGHT be a bit meticulous about grammar (mine and others'). What you might not know is that for a period of my career, I was a copy editor and proofreader.

I still work at a publishing company, so I keep these Lesser Known Editing and Proofreading Marks posted to the bulletin board in my office as a reminder of what I WISH I could have written on some of those manuscripts.

These do make sense. I imagine the horror in the face of the writer and editor when they see these symbols in a copy. - Layce of copy editing and proofreading.
