Matt Solomon Copy Editor
Detail oriented copy editor with the will to teach writers and contributors along the way. I am passionate about writing therefore I have always attempted to teach writers about the pattern and common mistakes they make so that their skills can improve. I have been associated with several popular publications and I wish to start my own publishing house some day. For this, I wish to learn more and be able to deliver good work and guidance.

    Responsible for reading and editing books and discussing the flaws with the author. I always discuss the work edited so that the writer learns along the way.

    I am also responsible for following the instructions and regulations of the printing press. I check that every piece of writing that has to be published, complies with the way of writing prescribed by the press authorities.

    Responsible for editing news submitted by reporters and designing the front and back pages of the newspaper.

    I was in charge of verufication of news and then editing it and reducing it to the size of news that was needed to fill the front and back pages. I was appreciated for my efforts to verify all news items and write extra detail for follow-up news about incidents that had happened previously.
