A few times a year, I offer pro bono work to non-profits, particularly Christian artists. Usually this is in the form of proofreading (not copy editing, generally) short documents such as simple websites, closed captions, press releases or ads. If you know of someone who could use a fresh pair of eyes before they publish, contact me well in advance to discuss my availability. If I can help out, I won’t charge but I will ask for recommendations to new clients and/or a testimonial for my website.
On occasion, I may be able to help with obituaries, too.
To see one take on why we all need a proofreader to check for typos (it doesn’t mean you can’t write!), read this article.
