Your thoughts about 'editorial' skills required by copywriters...Views: 141
Nov 30, 2006 4:15 am re: Should copywriters take up a predominantly proofreading job?
Anuradha M S Your typo, Farrukh: final para, line 4, word 6: the word "not" is mis-spelt as "npt".

is the hug mine then, from Farrukkh?

take a bow, Farrukkh, great style of copy, easy on the eye and very attractive sentence structure.

Back to the discussion at hand: Proofreading is par for the course as much as changing a car's tyres is to the skill of car driving. Mastery over anything actually begins at being good at the basics and then cruising up to bigger things...
A copywriter/writer/journo has the task of representing things correctly, precisely, with no errors: readers look up to such great "thinkers", for each bit that this breed writes, should inspire and interest a motley crowd of readers, whose identity can be only imagined at best, most of the time. Like web selling.
So why not proofreading: it's part of the job
