THE EDITORIAL CYCLE


Creating squeaky clean copy is no mystery: it requires well-established editorial practices.


1. Create a brief

Agree on audience, goals and budget, capture in writing

 

2. Developmental edit

Shape raw material to best fit format and target audience


3. Copyedit

Fact check, clean up grammar, punctuation and syntax


4. Proof

Create clean copy and formatting, ready for prime time


5. Format

Move final copy into final publishing format: print, Web, mobile


6. Proof in context

Ensure clean copy and formatting, ready for prime time


7. Publish

Distribute and promote finished work


Rinse & Repeat: Especially with raw, first-draft copy, editing and proofing steps may need multiple iterations.
