diy. with our help.
grey matter media loves indie artists. we love small businesses. we love the self-published and self-employed. we adore the weird and absurd, the niche-shaping creators, the innovators of our neighbourhoods. and more than anything, we love being part of their process. we will be your second pair of eyes or ears, your editor, your writer, your reviewer, your promoter. we are here to make whatever it is you do a success.
beta reading offers an honest and open opinion regarding the quality of the material. beta readers can be considered the very first member of your audience, letting you know exactly what they think of your work before it is published. we address continuity, grammar/spelling/punctuation, flow, believability, and enjoyability.
you've already done the hard part. you've written something. whether it's website text, a collection of poems, a community newsletter, or science fiction's next epic trilogy, the words have been committed to page, and you're...mostly happy with it. what you need is someone to take a fine-toothed comb (and red-tipped pen) to it. to correct grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, and misused punctuation. to do the picky technical stuff that no one really wants to do. we dig that stuff around here, and take pride in doing it well.
proofreading is the quality control of the creative process. you've done your writing, you've done your editing. you were ready to publish that bad boy yesterday. or post it to your website. or mail it to your mom. whatever. but before sending it out into that big, scary world, you want someone else to give it a quick look over, just to make sure nothing was missed. to assure you there are no typos, no print errors, no forgotten chapters or citations. let us have a look - we guarantee fast and efficient proofreading that won't even cut into your coffee money.
from website text to technical reports, promotional material to monthly newsletters, if it needs writing, we can write it. our portfolio boasts material ranging from prim and proper real estate ads to rambling, raunchy anecdotes from vancouver's underground, and quite literally everything in-between. our professional writers love a creative challenge, and we pride ourselves on being able to take on a variety of projects, and producing quality material each and every time.
