Proofreading is just about checking spelling and grammar, right? Wrong. Proofreading is so much more than that. Although spotting a spelling mistake right before you publish something is a great feeling, correcting consistency and formatting errors is also important if you’re wanting professional-looking content that’s easy to read.

It’s even worse when that someone will be reading your work whilst you’re in the same room and giving you live feedback on it.
When you’ve spent ages slaving away writing the perfect article, essay or report, deleting some of your precious words to meet a strict word limit can be painful.
