Your On-Call Editing Team, Without All the Overhead

You want your text to look its best on every project.

But you don’t have the budget—or time—to hire a dedicated, in-house proofreader or copy editor. And you’re frustrated by the hassle of trying to find a reliable freelancer.

You need an extra set of eyes on your content so you can share it without worry of embarrassing errors or clunky phrasing.

Here’s the thing, though. You want to work with a partner you can trust.

Not some fly-by-night freelancer or a faceless corporate editing service (located who knows where) that won’t take the time to understand your needs.

Stress-Tested Under Unthinkable Conditions

So, how did all this get started?

With a historic hurricane, actually.

On August 30, 2005, the morning after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, Times-Picayune copy editor Dave Baker was floating atop floodwaters on a large piece of foam, trying to get a better look at the unbelievable scene of devastation. The sound of rescue helicopters hung in the air.

The night before, Dave had recruited and led a team of copy editors and news designers who worked by generator power until nearly 3 a.m. in the Times-Picayune’s cramped, sweltering “hurricane bunker” through the most stressful time of their professional lives.

They and other seasoned journalists of the newspaper were awarded two Pulitzer Prizes for their work in the wake of the disaster.

Dave’s experience during Hurricane Katrina forever shaped his work ethic as an editor: He knows a thing or two about being flexible and staying cool and confident under pressure.

After moving to New York City and working at The New York Times and The Nation magazine, Dave struck out on his own and founded Super Copy Editors.

His vision: a one-of-a-kind, boutique editing service that provides individual attention to businesses seeking highly accurate proofreading and copy editing. Every member of his team has been hand-picked and tested under fire.

Over the years, we developed a particular passion for working with ad and branding agenciesmarketing departments, and education organizations. If that’s you, well, we’re going to be best buds.

Values You Can Count On

  • We believe in strong teamwork. That means you’ll have a full partner.
  • We are skillful and passionate. That means you’ll expect and get the best.
  • We are fast and efficient. That means you’ll hear back from us promptly during office hours.
  • We always follow through on our promises. That means you’ll never get jerked around.

If you value quality, consistency, and teamwork—as well as grace under pressure—then you’ve found the right place.

We’re just as excited as you are. So, let’s talk about how we can work together on your next proofreading or copy editing project.

Featured Case Study

EL Education needed regular copy editing of their curriculum materials. They were overwhelmed with large amounts of text, and their previous freelance copy editor was both too expensive and not flexible enough to take on the daily volume of content required. Here’s how we helped them excel.
