Writing an Essay? Re:word Can Help

writing_an_essayChances are, if you have gone through a traditional upbringing that includes attending elementary school, high school and some form of post-secondary school, you’ve written plenty of essays.  The essay is often used as a benchmark to develop a student’s writing, editing, analyzing, comparing and contrasting skills.  It forces you to think and express and examine your own thoughts, beliefs and ideas.  Of course, for many students these noble attributes are lost and writing an essay is just one of those things that must be done in order to pass a class.

Why Your Business Should Consider Professional Editing Services

proofreading-services-for-businessesIf you own or manage a business, think of all the different types of written communication that go out into the world each day with your company name on them.  This may include website copy, blog posts, newsletters, advertisements, presentations, white papers and brochures.  You may even provide training manuals and other long-form copy that’s intended to teach or enlighten employees or your prospective customers.

When you sit back and look at everything, it’s quite a list.  And most of it is likely produced and sent out without the benefit of a professional editing service.  Sure, you may have a few people on staff that have a way with words, but you may be selling yourself short.
