Everyone Needs an Editor

Alachua County residents have access to a fantastic (and little known) resource. The Adult Learning Center provides access to a service that offers free proofreading for documents. And you'll get a response within 24 hours!
I've personally received feedback on all sorts of materials - blog posts, articles, web content, essays for job applications, resumes, and cover letters. It's a fantastic service, and it's free! Documents cannot be larger than 1400 KB, but my 450 word article was only 19 KB, for some perspective.

I think this service could help busy indiepreneurs who need a second set of eyes. Non-profits may benefit from sending grant proposals for proofreading.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you use the service.

I'm taking a long weekend to visit my sister, so my work week is ending today. Happy Thriday!
