Service Description

Your ideas are important. Your reputation is important. Your livelihood is important.

The written material you present to the public is often the only window they have into your world. If that writing is sloppy, misspelled, or grammatically incorrect it directly reflects upon you.

As difficult and time consuming as they may be, proofreading and copy editing are an absolute must if you want your audience to take your written materials seriously.

Fortunately, The Critical Squid’s got your back.

**Squid Fact #1**

The colossal squid has the largest eyes in the animal kingdom. Each one of the colossal squid’s eyes can be up to 30 cms across, being bigger than a dinner plate and having a lens the size of an orange.

The Critical Squid knows how difficult it is to accurately proofread your own material. You wrote it. You know what it’s supposed to say. It takes the fresh point of view of a qualified, professional proofreader to see what’s really there. It takes someone who's not already intimately familiar with your subject matter to tell you if what you've written makes sense to the uninitiated.

It takes The Squid.

Whether it’s an essay, book, legal document, resume, chart, graph, PowerPoint presentation, grant application or any other piece of writing, The Critical Squid misses nothing.
