Proofreading is the final step. It is often the most overlooked because many writers assume the copy editor caught all of the errors. Although a good copy editor should be able to find most errors, no one is perfect (we may be perfectionists at heart, but we have to admit, we are also human). Proofreading is also your last line of defense to catch any missed typos or formatting issues before you send your manuscript off to an agent/ publisher or upload it for self-publishing. It is imperative you have another set of eyes to read through the final “proof” to catch any missed or new errors created in the editing process.
